""The same applies with the Duchy of Cornwall as applies with the Duchy of Lancaster in respect of people who die intestate without known relatives. That money goes straight into the coffers of the Duchy, and therefore straight into the pocket of the Prince of Wales""
Yes but what is not said is that this intestate law only covers the territory of Cornwall and not Duchy lands outside of the Cornwall.
This is for the simple reason that, constitutionally, what is described as the 'county' of Cornwall is in fact a royal Duchy with a status not dissimilar to a Crown Protectorate.
