Royal family in Denmark could be left without a steady source of income provided by the state.
Danish politicians are planning to limit the number of the Queen’s grandchildren who will receive an annual salary from the state.
Queen Margrethe II has eight grandchildren with politicians stating that “simple mathematics” would require them to look again who is eligible for funding.
There has been cross-party that Crown Prince Frederik’s son, Prince Christian, will continue to receive the state-funded salary as he is second-in-line to the throne.
A spokesman for the ruling Venstre party, Jakob Elleman-Jensen, told Politiken: “Simple mathematics dictate that there needs to be some sort of limit.
“Otherwise within a few generations there will be several hundred princes and princesses who need an annual salary.”
Prince Christian’s three younger siblings and the four children of the Queen’s second son, Prince Joachim, are thought to lose their eligibility.
“Government finances should only have the task of supporting one of his children, who will inherit the throne after him.”
The Danish Royal Family’s spokespeople have declined to comment on which of the grandchildren they want to receive annuities
