英国女王和英国民众生活差别很大吗?

What Does The Queens Day Look Like And How Does She Compare To An Average British Person?

你有想过伊丽莎白女王每天都干什么吗
Have you ever wondered what Queen Elizabeth really does throughout her daily life
她和其他在英国生活的人有什么不同呢?
and how different that might be to other people ’ s lives in the United Kingdom?
她早饭吃什么 并且又是谁来给她做饭呢
What she has for breakfast, who cooks it for her,
她去过商店吗?
and has she ever been to the shops
或者有过任何普通人经历吗?
or had any of the experiences an average Joehas?
除非做些了解 否则无法知道别人怎样生活
You never really know how the other side lives, until you do a bit of digging.
今天的视频中 我们将会深入了解
In today’s show, that’s exactly what wewill be doing: learning a little bit about
英国女王的起居生活
the Queen of the United Kingdom
以及她的生活和普通人到底有哪些不同
to see what she gets up to and how different her life is to everyday people.
欢迎观看信息秀系列:女王对比英国民众
Welcome to this episode of the Infographic Show: The Queen vs the Average Brit.
伊丽莎白·亚历山大·玛丽生于1926年4月21日
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was born on April21st, 1926.
她的父亲乔治四世死于1952年2月
When her father, King George VI died in February 1952,
她成为了第二任伊丽莎白女王
she became Queen Elizabeth the 2nd.
她的加冕礼于1953年6月2日举行
Her coronation was on June 2nd, 1953.
她成了整个英联邦的女王
She is the Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms.
所以她的生活和普通英国人相比如何?
So how does her life compare to the average Brit?
先让我们来看看《皇冠纪事》
First, we came across The Crown Chronicles,
一个专注于出版皇室新闻的线上刊物
an online publication focusing solely on Royal news.
他们出版了一篇详细解读女王日常工作的文章
They published an article detailing the Queens daily routine –
这开了一个好头
a great place to start.
女王早上八点半左右起床
Her Majesty gets up at around 8.30 am,
每天早上九点在苏格兰风笛的声音中开始一天
being greeted by the sounds of Scottish bagpipes each morning at nine,
在白金汉宫有吹笛人在她宫殿下的阳台演奏
as a piper plays on the terrace beneath her apartment at Buckingham Palace.
早餐的话 她一般吃玉米片
For breakfast, she usually has Cornflakes or
特制谷物 新鲜水果或果脯
Special K cereal and fresh or dried fruit.
早餐前的起床风笛和一般的叫醒电话服务完全不同
Bagpipes before breakfast is far from the norm of wake up calls
但是拿玉米片当早餐 的确和普通人没什么两样
but Cornflakes for breakfast…that’s pretty normal.
根据2014年的一次关于英国人最爱的早餐调查
According to a 2014 survey on what Britain ’ s best love for breakfast,
玉米片排在第5位
Cornflakes was number 5 on the list.
所以在提到吃早餐的习惯时
So when it comes to morning eating habits,
女王和普通人一样
the Queen is not far off the average.
但是在吃过早餐之后
But then after Breakfast,
女王的生活与普通人的生活不一样了
life takes a less than average direction,
当女王打开她的“粉丝邮箱”时
when The Queen decides to open her ‘fan mail’.
每天她都能收到超过三百封来自民众的邮件
She can receive over 300 letters from the public every single day.
她当然没有时间一一打开
She doesn ’ t have time to open them all,
当然 有时她会选择一小部分回复
of course, but she does choose a few to reply to,
但一般是随机抽取的
and usually takes a random sample.
女王的下午一般是
The Queen ’ s afternoons are often spent
参加公共活动
on public engagements,
仔细从每年收到的成千上百的邀请函挑选
carefully selected from hundreds of invitations she receives each year.
她每年都会出席此类活动超过300次
She carries out well over 300 per year,
访问学校 医院 工厂 军队
visiting schools, hospitals, factories, military units,
艺术馆 流浪汉收容所和英联邦组织
art galleries, hostels for the homeless, and British and Commonwealth organisations.
每当出国旅游时
When travelling outside of London,
女王启用皇家专用直升机
The Queen will use the Royal helicopter,
或者更快的皇家空军飞机
or sometimes a Royal Air force aircraft for the speed ithas.
有时也会选择皇家火车
She will also use the Royal Train,
类似于便携式的迷你宫殿
which functions as a portable mini palace.
所以她一天大多数时间都为日常活动
So the majority of her day is a routine suited
这和英国民众的生活差别很大
for Royalty and very different to the average Brit.
女王和英国民众还有什么不同呢?
What else can we explore when it comes the Queen vs the average Brit?
众所周知 英国女王对狗情有独钟
One thing the Queen is well known for is her love
且尤其喜爱柯基
of dogs, in particular Corgis.
女王会在午饭后带着柯基们
The Queen takes her pack of Corgis out for a walk just after lunch,
在白金汉宫附近散步
around the grounds of Buckingham Palace.
狗狗是英国最常见的宠物
A dog is the most common pet in the UK,
英国24%的家庭都十分享受“妙探狗福星”的陪伴
with 24 % of households enjoying the company of a K 9.
然而 普通家庭的狗狗
however, where the life
和皇室柯基的生活在吃的方面可能大有不同
of the average house dog may differ to that of a Royal Corgi is
它们不会吃袋装的狗粮和罐头食品
when it comes to eating…Forget bagged dry food and canned wet food,
根据布莱恩·霍伊于2013所著的
according to Brian Hoey in the 2013 book
《皇室宠物》写到 柯基们在下午五点吃饭
“Pets by Royal Appointment,”the Queen’s Corgis are fed at 5 p.m. each evening
他们食用由厨师特别烹制的菲力牛排和鸡胸肉
and dine on filet steak and chicken breast that has been expertly prepared by a chef.
柯基们的食谱由各种新鲜的食材组成
The menu is created from scratch with fresh ingredients,
食谱每天会打印出来 贴在厨房里
and it is typed up daily and placed in the kitchen.
男侍为它们呈上菜肴
Their meals are hand delivered to them by a footman,
但是有时女王会在它们食用前
while sometimes the Queen herself
为它们倒上肉汁
pours gravy over their feast before they begin eating.
小柯基们真幸运啊!
Now those are some lucky little Corgis!
那么女王到底有多富有呢?
What about her wealth?
英国女王的净资产和普通英国民众相比又如何呢?
How does The Queen’s net worth compare tothe average Brit?
彭博资讯显示
According to Bloomberg,
据估 女王个人净资产达四亿二千五百万美元
The Queen is estimated to have a personal net worth of around $ 425 million.
其中包括价值六千五百万的桑德林汉姆别墅
That includes the $ 65 million Sandringham House
以及价值一亿四千万的巴尔莫勒城堡
and the $ 140 million Balmoral Castle.
对于任何一个普通人来说 这是一笔巨款
That ’ s a lot of money to the man on the street,
但是可能比你想象的统治者的财富要少
but it ’ s maybe less than you would think for a monarch,
不要以为她是英国首富
and would not put her at the top end of the UK rich list. However,
这些都只是她继承来的
those figures are only what she hasinherited.
她的家族真正的财产来源于那些不断增长的信托财产
The true wealth of her family comes from properties kept in trust, which generate income.
这些信托财产被称作皇家财产
The trust is called the Crown Estate and
包括王冠和白金汉宫
includes the Crown Jewels and Buckingham Palace, as
还有伦敦中心地带的大部分区域
well as large areas of central London,
包括附近所有的她统治的区域
including nearly all of Regent Street, half the buildings
以及圣詹姆斯公园 农田 工厂 办公楼的等一半的建筑
in St. James farmland, industrial, office, and retail properties,
还有大约一半的商业地产靠近海岸线
about half of the United Kingdom ’ s shoreline,
甚至附近十二海里的公海
and almost all the seabed to the 12-mile territorial limit.
我们尝试估计这些到底值多少钱
We tried to find out exactly how much this is all worth,
但是自从有些资产为私人所有
but since some of the assets are privately owned
其余的宪法规定在女王在位期间由她
while others are owned on behalf of the nation by the monarch for
代表国家拥有 这真是太复杂了
the duration of their reign, it is complicated.
据路透社估计
According to a Reuters estimate,
英国皇室名下资产约为三百四十八亿美元
the British monarchy has nominal assets worth about $ 34.8 billion.
但是这不足以让英国皇室
That would not get the British monarchy a spot
登上全球富豪排行榜前十 但是
in the top 10 global rich list, but it
挤进全球前20名是可以的
would place the family in the top 20 globally.
这一切与普通英国民众相比又如何呢?
How does this all compare to the average Brit?
根据英国每日邮报
Well according to the UK ’ s Daily Mail newspaper,
法律方面的专家计算
legal experts calculated the value of the
英国人均的资产净值 存款 退休金 投资收益 汽车以及个人财产
average Briton’s property equity, savings,pensions, investments, cars and possessions
约为十四万七千一百三十四英镑
at £147,134.
这对于女王的财富微不足道 并且每日邮报指出
So not a scratch on the Queen ’ s wealth, and as the Daily Mail pointed out,
女王拥有的财富比大卫贝克汉姆的个人净资产还要少上百分之0.01
less than 0.01 percent of footballer David Beckham’s net worth.
所以女王陛下吃玉米片 遛狗
So Her Majesty eats Cornflakes, walks her dogs,
并且给回复那些写信给她的人
and replies to mail when people write to her.
她的生活与普通英国民众没有太多的不同
Not too far away from your average Brit.
但是除了这些日常的活动
But outside of those ordinary activities,
她也过着一种普通人无法企及的生活
she also lives a far more extraordinary life
到处飞去参加会面
with travelling and attending appointments,
而且对于她的个人净资产
and when it comes to her net worth,
虽然很难得到一个确切的数字
though it ’ s hard to get exact figures on it,
很明了的 是英国女王不缺钱
it is clear the Queen is not short of a dollar.
所以 女王比普通英国人要富有的多是公平的吗?
So, is it fair that the Queen is so much richer than the average Brit?
英国应该继续保留君主制吗?
Should the UK even continue to have a queen?
