The Queen faces no cuts to the royal finances for the next two years, despite an 11 per cent rise in her income, according to The Telegraph.
The Queen's income has increased in recent years from £36.1 million to more than £40 million, according to The Telegraph, but the royal finances appear set to be untouched by the Conservatives' austerity plans.
The Queen receives a single Sovereign Grant of 15% of the profits from the Crown Estate. Rising property prices in the capital in recent years have meant that her income from this has been considerably boosted.
Prime Minister David Cameron and George Osborne, the chancellor of the exchequer, introduced the Sovereign Grant, which came into law in 2013.
Previously the Queen's expenses were paid via the Civil List.
Campaigners are now calling for a review of the funding formula, but under the terms of the Sovereign Grant Act 2011 the next scheduled review would not be until April 2016.
Even then cuts are by no means certain and are likely to be resisted by the Palace, which says it needs the money to carry out a backlog of repairs.
That backlog should become apparent on Tuesday when Buckingham Palace is due to publish its annual report on the royal finances.
