Meghan Markle & Kate Middleton: Royal wedding dresses compared in price

Daena said: “Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex’s unforgettable Givenchy wedding dress, was accented by a delicate 16 foot-long veil embroidered with Commonwealth flora.

“It cost approximately £110,000, which is over three times the average American’s annual income and the Duchess paid for it herself.

“The Duchess, a massive advocate of gender equality and female empowerment chose Givenchy for her big day with Prince Harry because she wanted to honour British talent and the visionary Claire Waight Keller, who happens to be the first female artistic director of Givenchy.

“While the Royal Family covered an estimated £32million for the Sussexes wedding, it comes as no surprise that the Duchess – who had been paying for her own clothes since the announcement of her engagement to Prince Harry – paid for her own dress because she has enjoyed a very successful acting career.

“Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge’s regal Victorian wedding dress for her wedding to Prince William, was paid for by her parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, who run a successful party supplies business apart from inheriting familial fortunes.
