There's some confusion over who exactly is footing the bill for the massive $455 million renovation to Buckingham Palace.
"If the Queen — the royal family — wants to consider a contribution, I certainly wouldn't send the check back," Labour Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell said on BBC's "The Andrew Marr Show."
"We, the public, don't get to enjoy the vast majority of Buckingham Palace. So why are we handing over the money?" a Sky News anchor asked.
