The Queen is taking a pay cut

GREAT BRITAIN (CNN) - The British Royal Family is not exempt from these tough economic times--the Queen is getting a pay freeze.

It's the latest move by parliament to cut the kingdom's own deficit.

The Monarchy's budget has been trimmed already.

But now taxpayers will not foot the bill for repairs for the royal palaces. And there will be fewer royal parties.

But the Queen already has a reputation for being frugal.
