How to use "Estate of the realm" in context?

When one thinks of the royal family and their estate, one might imagine splendor and extravagance. However, over the centuries, this has not always been the case. The monarchy has had to make do with what was available, and in some cases, what was necessary.

For example, during the reign of King Henry VIII, the monarchy needed money to support its numerous wars. To raise money, the king sold annuities-a type of contractual arrangement in which the purchaser pays an almighty sum of money in return for a lump sum payment at a later point in time.
