I thought she personally owned a stud farm in Kentucky. OPs article confuses what she owns personally and what is owned by the Crown Estates.

It’s so sad that she doesn’t know what it’s like to freely walk down the street. Not for a second. Ever. A life of zero freedom of movement. She’s hardcore!

R3 Didn't she escape with Princess Margaret on VE Day?

She knows what it's like. She lived a somewhat normal life in Malta in her early 20s. She went to the beauty parlor, shopping, out to lunch and dinner with friends... Albeit 75 years ago.

Her last name is Mountbatten-Windsor and calling her "Betty" isn't witty nor clever. It just sounds absurd to my ear.

At one time she owned a huge Mississippi cotton plantation:
"The Queen's Dixie Plantation"
According to the statements of Sen. Thomas J. McIntyre (D-N.H.) and Rep. Silvio O. Conte (R-Mass.) in 1971, Queen Elizabeth held a major share in Courtaulds Textile. Courtaulds came to their attention when the Queen had used it to hide her ownership in the largest plantation in Mississippi. The Queen apparently has used Courtaulds as a nominee for the purchase of other stocks, but what bothered the congressmen was that the wealthiest woman in the world was getting agricultural subsidies to run a plantation in the United States. In 1968, these two congressmen had described in the Congressional Record how the Queen obtained one of the world's largest plantations from Courtaulds, complete with sharecroppers, in Scott, Mississippi, situated on the banks of the Mississippi River near the border with Arkansas. It was known as the Delta and Pine Land Company, or ``the Queen's Farm,' and it consisted of 38,000 acres with rich soil, a factory, and a mill. At the time, it was worth $44.5 million. It employed hundreds of African-American laborers at minimal wages. Since 1968, it had been subsidized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to the tune of $1.5 million. On April 16, 1970, Senator McIntyre, while introducing a bill relating to limitations on farm payments, said: ``We paid the Queen $120,000 for not planting cotton on the farmland she owns in Mississippi.' Following the publicity, the Queen seems to have sold the plantation back to Courtaulds, but some believe Courtaulds merely exerted nominee ownership. In any event, the Queen's friend, Lord

Not only that, R1, but the family does get income from the Crown Estate, just a fairly small portion of it.

She doesn't own shit, she's just the current custodian of those assets.

In the art section they skip over the fact that this bitch owns over 550 sketches by Leonardo da Vinci. Let that soak in, over 550 sketches, by an artist who’s works are extremely rare. Really, imagine what money they could bring, the problems that could be solved and the museums of the world that could have works of art by Leonardo. The art collections of the Vatican need to be liberated from the Catholic Church and then those of the Queen.

As has been noted several times in this thread (crudely by R16), these are generally not her personal possessions. They are owned by the Crown or its affiliated institutions.

R17 The public should put pressure on the monarchy to release those drawings,vso the public can enjoy them in museums around the world.
I bet extreme public pressure would work.

The Queen does have an impressive collection of art on her own. It's not all owned by the Crown. The Windsors (or, honestly, the Hanovers since they're all directly descended from George I) have been buying on their own for a very long time.

R20 That's one thing that scares the wealthy and powerful, is a mass public revolt against them.
That always does the trick.

Look, if this Epstein thing is what leads to the downfall of the House of Windsor there can be something good that comes out of that mess.

Why would Epstein/Prince Andrew take down the House of Windsor? He's 9th in line. He's not important.
