Queen Faces Pay Cut, Starts Hoarding Corgis

Thanks to British austerity measures, the Queen is facing a pay freeze through 2015 that would bring her income to about $48 million per year, down from a high of $125 million in 1991. Though ramen will not be appearing in the kitchen at Buckingham Palace, the cut backs will still have an effect on the royal family. There won't be money for repairs to royal palaces, Prince William will be forced to continue paying for his own servants, and there will be "no extra money from the taxpayer to pay for the court of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge." We too have felt the sting of being forced to get by without a jester and a royal cup bearer, so our hearts go out to William and Kate.
