Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are about to exchange vows in less than a month. Their wedding will be on May 19, 2018, at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

As soon as the wedding ceremony ends, the couple will start a carriage procession. The reception will follow afterward at the Windsor Castle grounds.

Every wedding comes with meticulous preparations and extensive budget plans. Business Insider explained that an average wedding in the United States and in the United Kingdom costs around $34,000.

As for Prince Harry and Markle’s wedding, Bride Book came up with an estimation. They projected that the cost will reach up to a whopping $45.8 million, which is a thousand times more than an average couple’s wedding costs.

Traditionally, the bride’s family will cover all costs but it has been revealed that Kensington Palace will take responsibility for all expenses as shared by Business Insider.

During Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011, the palace also covered all expenses except for Middleton’s Alexander McQueen dress. The total fee for their wedding reached up to $34 million.

Usually, the venue will take up almost half of the budget, but since they are getting married at St. George’s Chapel, it is free of charge.

Transportation will also be cost-free since the Queen has a wide array of choices in vehicles.

The extensive budget will cover mostly the security to protect Prince Harry, Markle, the rest of the Royal Family, and the guests.

Bride Book’s estimation for security reaches up to $43 million.

The greatest cost for Prince William and Kate Middleton was also for their security.

If not for the protection and for their safety, the royal wedding will only cost about $2.8 million, which will cover the food, outfits, entertainment, and even the honeymoon.
