-- She may possess a vast fortune and masterpieces on her wall, but that doesn't mean she's not frugal when it comes to heating costs.
Queen Elizabeth was presented today with a lifetime achievement award for her devotion to equestrian sports by Princess Haya of Jordan at Buckingham Palace -- but it was her electric heater insider her ornate fireplace that got some attention.
The small heater has garnered notice in the past.
Last year, The Express newspaper reported on the heater, saying, "It is just the heater you might find in any student bedsitter. But despite her ... personal fortune, the 86-year-old monarch is as cost-conscious as any other pensioner."
No word on whether Princess Haya noticed the small heater.
