The crown and the monarch are slightly different
Crown is the state or establishment, of which the monarch is the head
ie, the crown own all the foreshore and therefore the monarch takes all title of goods therein like washed up salvage
but in reality, it doesnt actually belong to the reigning monarch, usually the receiver of shipwrecks or insurance
company underwriting the loss.
