Queen it up, ma'am

She's living beyond her means, says Parliament;
Britain's royal household needs to get a little more entrepreneurial, eye possible staff cuts and replace an ancient palace boiler, lawmakers say in a new report.
The report published Tuesday on the finances of Queen Elizabeth II has exposed crumbling palaces and depleted coffers, and discovered that a royal reserve fund for emergencies is down to its last million pounds ($1.6 million).
Legislators on the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee urged royal officials to adopt a more commercial approach and suggested opening up Buckingham Palace to visitors more often.
Sign autographs, have a garage sale of those less viewed paintings in the Royal art collections, sell naming rights to Buckingham Palace--the Jaguar Changing of the Guard?
