Meghan Markle’s wardrobe has been a source of debate and inspiration since she and Prince Harry announced that they were getting married.
The lady has style. Take the white suit she wore on her first official duty with the Queen, and the dress she wore for her engagement announcement. But who’s paying for all this? It’s normal for people to wonder if royals pay for their clothes or if designers are simply happy to loan them so they can show off.

As it turns out, royals do pay for their clothes, including the aforementioned suit, which costs a thousand dollars, and Markle’s engagement dress, which costs $78,000. According to PEOPLE, Natasha Archer, Kate Middleton’s stylist, calls several brands and asks for options. When they have chosen an outfit, all of the other options are returned and they pay the outfit that they chose.
Don’t worry about the royal couple’s finances though; it’s reported that Prince Harry’s net worth is of around $25 million and that Meghan Markle was paid $50,000 per episode of Suits, for seven seasons straight. They can buy all the outfits that they want.
