For the record:
These sovereign grants sound bad, but it is important to note that the government gets the profits from the lands. And the thing is, as Vox said about the Georges, it was a terrible deal for the monarchy. The grant gave them a lot of money each year, but the profits from the Crown Estate were actually far higher, meaning that this arrangement actually lowers your taxes.
