THE Queen is burger king of making rental profits — from eight McDonald’s branches and seven Nando’s, it has been revealed.
Marks & Spencer, Costa, Currys, Tui, Next, Boots, New Look and EE outlets are also helping to swell royal coffers.
They are among 218 brands — including sex toy shop Ann Summers — at 16 shopping centres in England that form part of the Queen’s £14.1billion property empire.
Cities with one include Liverpool, Newcastle and Oxford.
Her portfolio is managed by Crown Estates, an independent firm, which pays rent profits to the Treasury which, in turn, returns a quarter to the Queen, 94, through the Sovereign Grant.
A royal source said: “I doubt the Queen will be visiting any of the McDonald’s and Nando’s branches but her staff most certainly would love to.”
Crown Estates did not wish to comment.
