In the United Kingdom, the royal financial portfolio includes a retail park near Windsor Castle, a property that features a McDonald's restaurant. Queen Elizabeth II can even keep an eye on the investment, since the Bath Road Retail Park in Slough is visible from the Queen's quarters in Windsor Castle. The purchase, made by the Crown Estate in 2008, had a price tag of £92 million.
The Crown Estate is a semi-independent public entity that manages a large portfolio worth billions of pounds. It is one of the United Kingdom's largest property owners. However, Crown Estate property is not the private property of the reigning monarch, nor is it administered on her behalf.
