Under the terms of which the Queen Mother occupied Royal Lodge, the internal works were the responsibility of her office while The Crown Estate was responsible for the maintenance of the exterior of the building and the surrounding grounds. Total Crown Estate expenses on all such maintenance (exterior building and grounds) over the last 10 years amounts to £711,087. During that time no external work has been undertaken which could be described as refurbishment.

The Crown Estate has incurred no expenditure on internal refurbishment work.
