Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are now living charmed lives the vast majority of people on the planet can only dream of.
They have both married into extreme wealth and become a part of history as the wives of UK princes William, 37, and Harry, 34.
Their weddings were huge international events.
Kate married William in 2011, while Meghan wed Harry in May 2018.
Both weddings were extremely lavish, not just by civilian standards but by royal standards too.
Meghan Markle’s wedding dress cost a huge sum of money, far more than Kate Middleton’s already rather expensive gown.
Her chapel gown cost £387,000 and was by Givenchy, while her Stella McCartney gown for her reception cost a further £119,555. In total Meghan’s wedding dresses cost over half a million pounds, not including shoes, veils and other Accessories.
Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, on the other hand, cost £250,000. But, which royal woman spent more on her flowers?
Ahead of Meghan’s wedding, Business Insider estimated that the Duchess of Sussex’s flowers would cost £110,000.
However, after the wedding an expert proffered a larger sum.
Caroline Marshall-Foster, editor of The Florist Magazine suggested the blooms cost £500,000 taking into account human labour.
She told the Sun: “The team (I’m told 28 of them) were working through the night, never mind all the pre-prep and conditioning which would have taken hours given the need to keep some of these varieties in peak condition.”
However, Kate’s flowers were reported to have cost more. According to Good Housekeeping: “Overall, the floral budget was estimated at £800,000. Or around $1.1 million (£875k), one wedding expert estimated.”
Meghan Markle and Beyonce are said to be walking the Lion King red carpet for the London premiere.
Taking to Twitter, one user wrote: “Meghan Markle & Beyoncé are meeting this Sunday. My worlds are colliding in a glorious way. Throw Kamala Harris in the mix and my head would explode.”
“BRB, booking a flight to Heathrow,” an overseas fans said.
“We can't wait to hopefully see pics of Meghan hanging out with Beyonce,” another wrote.Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile
