Of course the Queen should pay for the refurbishment of Buckingham Palace.

She is one of the richest women in the world and we have cutbacks to public services, hospitals closing, prisons dilapidated and not fit for purpose and foodbanks in more demand due to goverment policy.

Why should the taxpayer fund the refurbishment of the palace?

There are better things to spend the millions on that will benefit more people, not just two.
