Actress and Royal Bride Meghan Markle’s wedding dress will set the Royal Family back $135,000.
Multiple royal and fashion industry sources have revealed the actress has opted for British couturiers Ralph & Russo to make the first of two gowns she plans to wear on May 19, when she marries Prince Harry.
She will wear the hand-stitched, heavily beaded design to walk down the aisle at St George’s Chapel in front of 600 guests – and an estimated billion TV viewers worldwide – as well as for the reception being held afterward by the Queen in St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle.
The $135,000 cost will be covered by Prince Harry and his family. Details about the dress came as several other elements of the big day were revealed.
Royal children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Mia Tindall are all believed be among the bridesmaids, flower girls and pageboys at the ceremony.
