The wedding cost the British taxpayers an estimate of $2.6 million, and they are not happy. Hasan Patel said on Twitter:

“Princess Eugenie is getting married today. I hope she has a nice time knowing that millions of pounds of taxpayers money are being used for her special day while school children go hungry and rough sleepers are dying on the streets.”

A campaign got started for all in favor of abolishing the British monarchy, that no public money would be used towards the wedding and to publish all taxpayer costs, a petition almost 47,000 people signed.
