  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

The cost for this shindig is likely to be around the £23 million mark - a good proportion of which will, directly or indirectly, come from the public purse.

At their first sit-down interview after they announced their engagement, the difference between them and Will and Kate during their first post-engagement interview was even more striking.
