This Is How Much Meghan Markle And Prince Harry’s Wedding Is Expected To Cost

It’s not going to be a small wedding. When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot at Windsor Castle on May 19, they are going to be celebrating in style, and luckily for them, Kensington Palace is picking up the tab. But if they were to write a check, they’d want to have a well-inked pen on hand, because their celebration is going to cost eight figures. EIGHT FIGURES!

Whereas the venue and/or wedding dress is often the biggest expense, in the case of Meghan and Harry, security will be the most costly expense.

Bridebook has broken down the overall cost of the couple’s wedding and excluding security and the honeymoon, the cost is expected to be over 100 times as much as the national average for the U.K., coming in at $43,251,913.30 (£31,969,873). Now, that’s a party!

That’s also about $10 million more than Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding.

Here’s the breakdown rounded to the nearest US dollar:

Venue – $473,514

Catering – $386,928
