As promised we proceed this week to give an account of the money expended in the keeping in order of the various parks and gardens for the use of the Royal Family. Our readers have already been made aware of the cost incurred by the Queen and her suite, also the cost incurred in the maintenance of the establishments for the use of aristocratic pensioners. Now we shall proceed to deal with the parks, forests, and gardens...If we keep a monarch, it is our duty to see that she is well-provided for...But we do object to the sum of £858 per annum being expended upon the Royal kitchen gardens at Windsor, and £888 upon the Windsor Home Park...This sum is tacked on to the estimates year after year, and the people of Great Britain are called upon to pay it...Is it for the use and the benefit of the people. Hardly, we should say” (6 August 1887, p.4).
