Queen Elizabeth has been forced to sell socks to raise money.
Queen Elizabeth has reportedly been forced to sell socks in a bid to raise money to recover the millions of pounds lost during the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking to ITV, royal commentator Russell Myers revealed the items for selling at the Royal Collection Shop. “I can reveal that in order to plug the £64m gap in the finances, because there are no tourists at the Palaces, Royal Collection has come up with a few handy gifts for you to pass on.“
“You can buy a pair of the Queen’s socks for £69 a pair. You can also have a hot water bottle, but only the cover for the hot water bottle, this is coming in at £115,” he added.
It’s not the first time Her Majesty has resorted to money making ventures to cover her cash shortfall. In July 2020, the Royal Collection Trust launched a bespoke gin, the Queen’s favourite tipple, after suffering losses of £30million due to the closure of its sites.
