Dressing like a royal doesn’t come cheap. According to a report by Page Six, since her engagement to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle’s wardrobe is estimated to cost around $1 million (Dh3.67 million).
Right from her wedding outfit to her Givenchy ceremony gown, Markle seems to have put her best foot forward when it comes to being royal ready.
While Markle’s custom Givenchy gown by Clare Waight Keller came with a price tag of $440,000; her Stella McCartney reception look was worth more than $157,000. She wore a printed Oscar de la Renta dress to Prince Harry’s cousin’s wedding, which retails for almost $6,000.
She also wore a $643 sheer-panelled Goat dress to Prince Charles’ garden party.
According to Katie Nicholl, royal expert, it is Prince Charles who has been picking up the tab for her “working royal wardrobe” post-nuptials.
“Look at the publicity she has brought in run up to the wedding. I would argue that’s worth every penny,” Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight.
Markle may recycle some of those royal looks in the months to come, in Kate Middleton-style.
“When you are buying that sort of couture with those sorts of price tags it would be criminal not to re-wear them,” Nicholl said.
