Security costs are a major component of the costs of supporting the monarchy. Naturally, Britain pays for the majority of these as the Queen and her family live in the United Kingdom. As an example, HM Treasury paid an extra one million pounds (1.35 million dollars) in 2012 alone to cover the expenses associated with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Ironically Canada spent almost six times as much (7.5 million dollars) as Britain on the Diamond Jubilee.
The grant from the Crown Estate also pays for 431 out of 1,200 members of the household staff for 18.2 million pounds in 2014-2015 (around 24.5 million dollars). Many of these staff were for security. Total public costs for the monarchy were 42.8 million pounds sterling (or fifty-eight million dollars), amounting to about $1.08 per person in Britain. Keep in mind the souvenir sales from the Diamond Jubilee alone amounted to half a billion British pounds, or 675 million dollars, outpacing the extra public expenses for the Jubilee in Britain by a factor of five hundred to one.
