That is 6.9 percent and thus 544,000 euros more than in the past three years. Felipe has received EUR 7,887,150 annually since 2018. At first glance, it looks as if the appanage for the royal family has been increased. But now the palace made it clear: the king receives as much money as in previous years!

He is now putting the almost 160,000 euros into an "emergency fund" that has been set up for unforeseen payments. The king has to spend three million euros annually on operating costs. This includes repairs, material deliveries or protocol services.
