It comes as no surprise that the royal family is living luxuriously, but just how expensive are those extravagant estates? UNCLE, a UK-based residential rental company, decided to crunch numbers and uncover the monthly rent of the British monarch's not-so-humble abodes. As you can imagine, the results are absolutely mad! 

• From Buckingham Palace to Frogmore Cottage, UNCLE's research revealed what the monthly rent would look like at the royal family's famed estates throughout the U.K. 
• Interest in living like a royal has stemmed from the popularity of The Crown, according to the study. 
• In more royal news, Meghan Markle channeled the Queen during her Vax Live appearance, according to experts. 


Talk about accommodations fit for a queen! The royal family is living quite comfortably at its many estates throughout the U.K., and one study decided to get technical. In order to project the monthly rent for each location, UNCLE utilized floor plans that are similar to the royal residences and estimated size in square meters. Perhaps now is the time to bargain with the British Monarch if you fancy a summer stay.
