According to estimates by Nationwide Building Society Buckingham Palace has gone up in value by 9000% since 1952 when the Queen came to the throne.

Back in 1952 the Palace is estimated to have been worth a cool £11m, whilst today, 60 years on in the Queen's Jubilee year, it's value is thought to be closer to £1bn according to Nationwide's estimates. Windsor Castle has also increased in value by a staggering 9350%, from £2m in 1952 to £189m today.

It's not just the Queen's residences which have gone up in value.

"Nationwide's House Price Index has been going since 1952, and has therefore run for the Queen's entire reign. During the Queen's reign the average UK house price has increased from £1,891 to £162,722 according to our data," Robert Gardner, Nationwide's Chief Economist said.
