According to the Danish media, the Crown Princely family had to let go of five members of their household staff to save up.

Those members included two cleaners, two liveried footmen and an administrative worker.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary receive $4.5 million annually from the Government. In 2007 the prince spent about $2.5 million on employees.

Australian-born Mary may adjust easily to a reduced household, since she lived a normal, financially average life before becoming a Princess.

With no light at the end of tunnel so far in the global recession, you could expect other royals to cut back in some way.
