What would happen to all the land if we became a republic?

i'm guessing they (every ex-royal) would get to keep their own land, just they wouldn't own everybody elses land any more.

One thing that's often said about the Royals is they don't cost us much. For example, Prince Charles supposedly earns a lot from his estates and doesn't receive money from the Civil List. However, if you're a republican, isn't all that land really "ours"?

If we were to become a republic, what would happen to all that land? Would it just go to the government?

PS, this is a thought experiment, I know the chance of becoming a republic is similar to that of Leyton Orient winning the Champions League.
