Anyone who has ever planned a wedding knows how ridiculously expensive it is.
It will practically cost you an organ and maybe even your first-born child just to cover all the hiked up expenses you’ll accrue. I’m convinced a champagne bottle pops whenever a business hears the word “wedding”.
And at some stage, you’ll probably feel like forgetting the whole damn thing and just eloping to Vegas with an Elvis impersonator officiating the ceremony. “I now pronounce you nothing but a hound dog.” Thank you. Thank you very much…
But as expensive as normal weddings are, Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle, 36, really takes the three-tiered cake with buttercream frosting.
According to British bridal website, Bridebook, Harry, 33, and Meghan’s wedding is expected to cost around $58.3 million. We’ll give you a moment to let that soak in.
In comparison, Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton cost $36.6 million. Loose change, really.
So why the hell is Harry and Meghan’s May 19 wedding costing so much more? Will Meghan be arriving for the ceremony in a unicorn-drawn wooden carriage carved by blind magic nuns in the Alps?
In short, no.
