      The cost of Harry and Meghan's home renovations 哈里和梅根的房屋翻修花費

      媒體英語-【BBC】哈里和梅根的房屋翻修花費(2)

      據英王室賬目顯示,蘇塞克斯公爵和公爵夫人用了 240 萬英鎊納稅人資金改造翻修了他們位于溫莎城堡的新居。經過翻修,弗洛格摩別墅(Frogmore Cottage)從五個獨立的住宅變成了一個大別墅。

      文字稿

      The Royal Family received more than £80m last financial year from the Treasury, in what's called the Sovereign Grant. That's to cover the cost of official duties and for the upkeep of royal palaces.

      英國王室在過去的一個財年里,收到了來自財政部 8000 多萬英鎊的撥款。這筆款項被稱為 “君王撥款”(Sovereign Grant),用于支付公務和皇家宮殿的維護費用。

      Some months after their wedding, Harry and Meghan announced that they would move out of Kensington Palace in London and set up in Frogmore Cottage, a large house in the grounds of Windsor Castle. But the house needed a lot of work – £2.4m worth, according to the accounts published today. That money came from the Sovereign Grant.

      哈里和梅根在婚禮幾個月后,宣布他們將搬出倫敦的肯辛頓宮,并在弗洛格摩別墅安家落戶。弗洛格摩別墅是位于溫莎城堡內的一幢大房子。不過其房屋需要大量的翻修工作,根據今天公布的賬目,翻修花費了 240 萬英鎊。這筆錢來自君王撥款。

      The Palace says the house was in very poor shape and divided into five separate residences. Taxpayer spending on the Royals is always a sensitive topic. Palace sources insist that extensive refurbishment was required. And that only basic fixtures and fittings were supplied with taxpayers' money.

      白金漢宮表示,弗洛格摩別墅里面的情況非常糟糕,而且還被分成了五個獨立的住宅。納稅人在王室成員身上的支出一直都是一個敏感的話題。白金漢宮消息人士堅稱,弗洛格摩別墅確實需要大規模的翻修,而且只有基本的固定裝置和配件是用納稅人的錢支付提供的。
