"•Family brings in 400 million a year in private review that under the “ sovereign act 2011” the government keeps £360 million of."
As Daz555 said, this is generated by assets from the crown estate, which belong to the country and not the monarchy.
•Family brings in £1.8 billion per year in tourism.
Not neccesarily convinced about the tourism argument myself, I still imagine people would be visiting Buckingham Palace with or without a queen, so can anyone really put a price on their value? Yes, events like Harry's Wedding would have brought in people to the country and raised money but how does that weigh up against the cost of the wedding, security etc.
•Country better off by £2.1 billion a year.
Maybe but why does everything have to come down to money? Should we let Russian dirty money flood the country because of the economic benefits? Should we let big business make government policy because they create wealth? Should we let facebook play a part in corrupting elections because Mark Zuckerberg has a few quid? How much money do you need to have to be considered better than everyone else?
If the royal family cost nothing or generated 10 times that amount then it wouldn't change things. It is a matter of principle. Sometimes we just need to do things because they are right. That means getting rid of all the hereditary power and influence the royals have.
