The Royal wedding will soon be upon us coming up on May 19th. As a soon to be bride myself, I know how much planning and money goes into making a wedding happen. I'll never forget the first time my fiance and I found out exactly how much some venues charge to rent a space for an evening! Not to mention some of the prices for vendors, food, etc. My fiance almost drove off the road one day when I told him how much a prospective vender might cost...telephone silence. Needless to say Meghan Markle and Prince Harry don't have to worry about the same stipulations as the rest of us. The sky is the limit for them! With that being said can you guess how much the total cost of this upcoming royal wedding is??
That wasn't a typo, it's really 45 million dollars to make this upcoming royal wedding happen! Surprisingly Prince Harry's wedding is even more than Prince William's wedding to Kate Middleton, which was 28 million and he's closer in line to the throne! Why so much? Other than the fact that Harry is the favorite grandchild... What are the costs going towards? Let me break it down for you:
$42.1 Million---Security Measures including snipers, drones, undercover police, etc.
$125,000---Twenty silver plated trumpets to play/announce event
$420,000---Glass Marquee for reception
$36,000---Sausage rolls & hot tea
After seeing the breakdown, I can totally understand the price and need for security at such a high profile event. That makes sense because that's needed but $70,000 for a cake??? Whewww. That's a tough one to swallow (pun intended)! I suppose when you have 2,640 guests that's how much a cake costs...regardless I'll still be glued to my TV watching the live broadcast, no matter how much they spend on their wedding!
