You're wrong.
The British government provides a pittance to the royal family. Inasmuch as the queen is the official Head of State, they get their money's worth.
Further, she doesn't NEED the money. She is the second richest woman in England, worth an estimated $450 million.
There was a time, not so very long ago, that with every tolling of the hour by Big Ben, the British Ensign was being raised at dawn somewhere on the earth. The British brought civilization, commerce, and Mother Church to the benighted of the world.
Regrettably, some, like Pakistan and Rhodesia, regressed to their more primitive legacies. But others - the U.S., India, and parts of Wales, became exemplars to the planet.

Isn't the richest woman in England the writer of the Harry Potter books? Na, I just checked, she's eleven or twelve down but still more wealthy than me and thee. :-)

Yes, the richest woman in England is, indeed, J.K. Rowling. Interesting story about Rowling. She wrote the first Harry Potter book in longhand while sitting in a local library. She, and her kids, were on the dole and she couldn't afford a computer or even heat for her flat.
Even after she became famous - and rich - she remembered her former dire circumstances and did what many women do when concerned about their financial future.
She married a dentist.

But the last few years she has had to actually pay income tax -- just like her poorest worker subject. Will she have to eat dog food?

As well as discrimination, murder, other niceties of Empah, in India as well as the rest of the world that the British felt God had destined them to displace native cultures with their own cruel religion. For just one -- perhaps the most infamous -- take a look at this horrendous massacre.
