Why King Charles won't pay inheritance tax on the Queen’s private fortune

King Charles will not have to pay tax on his inheritance from his late mother The Queen - although the new monarch has voluntarily agreed to continue following in his mother’s footsteps and paying income tax on his growing fortune.

Unlike members of the public that have to navigate the murky world of inheritance tax when a loved one dies with an estate valued more than the £325,000 threshold, the King is exempt thanks to a clause agreed in 1993 by then Prime Minister John Major.The little known clause scrapped the 40% levy when inheriting sums over £325,000, but only when the inheritance was being passed from “sovereign to sovereign”.

In total the crown estate has an estimated £15.2 billion in assets, with around 25per cent of the profits from its operation given to the royal family in the form of a sovereign grant.
