Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Royal Wedding Cost Summary From Security To The Honeymoon

Prince Harry and the American actress Meghan Markle will verily soon be celebrating their wedding, which could also be the biggest government spending for any public event in 2018. The total cost allotted to this historical trans-Atlantic union is $45,184,000 – up to $10 million more lavish than the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The biggest portion of the overall wedding cost will go to elaborate security, comprising 93.67% of the entire budget. The extraordinary public reception generated by the couple makes them a very high-value target for any hostile element – whether they may be avenging sympathizers of the Taliban or overzealous lunatics who can’t stand the idea of a biracial member of the British monarchy. The security budget levied upon the United Kingdom’s taxpayers is worth $42 million.

The second most expensive part of the budget goes to the catering, which is worth around $670,000. It is curious to know that the extravagant volume of food and drink only covers 1.48% of the overall expenses. Following the budget for catering is the amount of money spent on entertainment, formal presentation and documentation. The $650,000-worth program only covers 1.44% of the total wedding budget.

The venue for the royal wedding covers up to 1.09% of the entire wedding expenses. The British Crown will be spending $490,000 to pitch luxurious glass marquees to accommodate the outdoor delegates among the 4,040 invited guests.

Curiously, Meghan herself will independently shoulder the cost of her $421,000 wedding gown – which has already accrued up to £40,000 worth of alteration fees because of her rapid successive weight loss. Combining it with the outlay for the groom’s wear, the entourage wardrobe, wedding rings, and the hair and makeup; the overall budget for the attire effectively covers 1.03% of the total wedding expenses.

The printing of stationeries ($350,000), venue decorations ($335,000), honeymoon ($170,000) and the miscellaneous cost for portable toilets and wedding favors ($54,000) is each estimated to be less than 1% of the wedding budget. Curiously, none of these items are lower than the average cost of weddings in the United States.

Surely enough, the British government would not bother spending such profligate investment if it is not worth it. Due to the global support being given to this extremely unique and famous couple, Great Britain’s economy is estimated to earn $1 billion in 2018.
