This is stated in the documents Paradise Papers published by journalists.

He clarified that he did not think the Queen should have to personally apologize, but said that "anyone who puts money into a tax haven to avoid paying tax should acknowledge the damage it does to society".

While it claims to have received no tax advantages from investing offshore, offshore private equity funds are explicitly created to shield United Kingdom investors from paying USA taxes on their holdings.

The Paradise Papers have revealed how the powerful and ultra-wealthy, including Britain's Queen Elizabeth II's private estate, secretly invested vast amounts of cash in offshore tax havens.

The Duchy stated that it was not involved in the decisions made by the funds, and there is no evidence that the Queen also had any information about the individual investments made on its behalf.

There is nothing to suggest that any investments are illegal, the broadcaster added.

The surgery reduces the amount of food allowed into the stomach, making the patient feel fuller faster so that they consume less. Carey's team has contacted Anello's attorney and have agreed to pay invoices but Anello was not satisfied with their offer.

Documents disclosed in the so-called Paradise Papers leak show that the Queen's private estate invested £5.73 million in Dover Street VI Cayman Fund LP, held on the Cayman Islands, which in turn invested in BrightHouse, a rent-to-own firm which has been criticised for irresponsible lending, and off-licence chain Threshers.

"First obtained by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, the documents were then shared with scores of journalists and researchers associated with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and other media organizations, including the New York Times, BBC, and the Guardian".

A small amount from the funds ended up in the company behind BrightHouse, a chain accused of irresponsible lending, and retail chain Threshers, which went bust owing 17.5 million pounds in United Kingdom tax.

The Queen voluntarily pays income tax on revenue she receives.

The papers also list that the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's top fundraiser and senior advisor Stephen Bronfman, heir to the Seagram fortune, moved almost $60 million to offshore tax havens with ex-senator Leo Kolber.

The spokesperson of the Duchy was quoted saying in the report, "The Duchy has only invested in highly regarded private equity funds following a strong recommendation from our investment consultants".

Separately, Donald Trump's commerce secretary Wilbur L Ross Jr is also revealed to have a stake in a firm that deals with Russians who are under USA sanctions.

It said that all its investments were legitimate.

"I can understand totally the commercial reasons for the way in which the Super Fund would be investing this way".

The Dover Street investment is said to form only 0.3% of the total value of the Duchy.

He made the comment after he was specifically asked whether he wanted the Queen to apologise over her offshore investments.
