According to new reports, it looks like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are not going to have the ‘commoner’ wedding we all thought they’d go for. In fact, we’ve learned that they are planning to spend no less than $30 million on their wedding and have many high-profile guests!
Even though the couple has just announced their engagement, the plans for the wedding have already started.
The venue for the May wedding was chosen to be St. George’s Chapel, and we also know that Prince William will be the best man.
In addition, his kids with Kate Middleton, Prince Charlotte, and Prince George will also have roles in the ceremony.
Another thing that we should know about it is that it will reportedly amount to no less than $30 million!
‘Harry and Meghan are not holding back on anything. It will be a day of glitz and glamour!’ one palace insider claimed.
Despite the fact that it may sound like quite a lot, it’s actually pretty close to what Kate and William spent on their nuptials as well!
The whole thing was $34 million, with $32 million of that being invested in security only!
That being said, Meghan and Harry have put aside $25 million for that purpose as well, especially because the event will apparently be televised.
The budget for the wedding dress will also be similar to Kate’s.
Even though she is yet to choose a gown, she has set aside $500,000 for a custom-made dress which is quite comparable to the $434,000 Middleton spent on hers.
But the price of it is not the only extreme detail about the wedding.
Some of the A-listers attending the royal event are David and Victoria Beckham, Serena Williams and Elton John who according to one report, is also set to sing.
‘Elton holds a special place in Harry’s heart as he was close to his mother, Princess Diana,’ our insider explained.
