Danish politicians are attributing "simple mathematics" to the reason why they will cut off the Queen's grandchildren's yearly allowance once they come of age, according to a media report.
Currently, all eight of Queen Margrethe II's grandchildren receive some sort of state funding. However, politicians from Denmark's ruling party, Venstre, are examining each individual's eligibility, reported the U.K.'s Independent newspaper.
"Simple mathematics dictate that there needs to be some sort of limit. Otherwise within a few generations there will be several hundred princes and princesses who need an annual salary," said Venstre Party spokesperson Jakob Elleman-Jensen, according to the Independent, citing the Danish newspaper Politiken.
The Venstre Party was not immediately available for comment when contacted by CNBC.
