She gets her income through a taxpayer fund called Sovereign Grant, which is paid yearly to the British royal family.

It was initially called the Civil List and was replaced by the Sovereign Grant in 2012.

According to reports, the Sovereign Grant was set to over $86 million in 2021 and 2022. They are for her official travel, property, maintenance and operating or maintenance costs of her household.

The Royal Firm, also known as the Monarchy Plc, includes a group of senior members and public figures of the House of Windsor, the royal family the Queen headed.
