How accurate is that statement?

The story states: “This money comes from HM Treasury and is funded by the taxpayer.”

It is actually funded by the Crown Estate, not the taxpayer, with the Crown Estate giving the taxpayer £312.7 million in that year, before that £86.3 million is given back to the Crown (The Sovereign).
