You're welcome, Alex.

Mogul of Pineapples - I do not work for SBS but I am a satisfied customer of them, as is my brother. Sorry you took my enthusiasm the wrong way. I would have been relieved if someone had cleared the air for me when I was looking into this card and company years ago. When I saw Alex's post, I remembered the confusion I had been through and so I wrote about my experience in hopes of helping someone else.

The annual fee is £4,490. I thought it was high but my personal PA is worth every cent. I've had her book my Christmas holiday, sort out VIP Bocelli tickets at the last minute and she even found a Dior dress my wife has been trying to track down for 6 months. So far, I've been quite impressed with the service.

If that's the annual fee, then that is the highest among every credit card in the world. What about an initiation fee?

I don't get it. What makes the Royal Mastercard worth that much more than the Amex Black?

There is no initiation fee. I was recommended by a current member and then they did a credit check.

For me, the deal breaker was that the Royal card comes with faster and better service. I used to have a Centurion so I've been down both roads. While the Centurion was more widely recognized, they have more clients than Royal and many times my requests were not handled quickly, and sometimes took days. With Royal, I get answers within hours since their membership is capped to a small number.
