The current generation of the British monarchy make headlines from time to time with their fashion choices. Always the one to dress the smartest, their dresses don’t come cheap. While the line between these fashionable monarchs and movie celebrities are blurring, there remains one crucial difference, who pays for their wardrobe? When it comes to Meghan Markle, the latest celebrity to cross over to the royal side, the answer is shocking.
For most celebrities, barter system is the way when it comes to wearing designer dresses. They do not pay for the dresses but wear them for free instead. In return, the designer or label gets publicity on the red carpet. It is a simple system of celebrities advertising while getting to wear fancy clothes. For the Royals however, the rule does not apply.
Today, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle attended the inaugural Royal Foundation Forum. The Royal Foundation unites people to help tackle society's biggest challenges. TRH and Ms. Markle discussed the inspiration behind The Royal Foundation, the issues that are close to their hearts, and their ambitions for the future. This was the first time The Royal Foundation has brought together people from across all of its programmes, including @invictusgames2018, @Heads_Together, @united4wildlife, #CoachCore & #EndeavourFund.
They prefer to own their clothes before they wear it around the world, being photographed every step of the way. For Suits star Meghan Markle, it is no different. People reported that the former actress had to pay for all he clothes she has worn so far for her royal public engagements. She is reported to have spent $28,688 on outfits and all that amount was paid by Meghan and Harry together since her engagement announcement.
You may now understand why the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton likes to repeat her clothes and accessories periodically. For Meghan, she and her would-be husband Prince Harry will not have to shell out from their pocket after they get married on May 19. Following the royal betrothal, the couple will be able to withdraw from the $28 million income of the Duke of Cornwall. The same is done by Kate and Prince William for their public appearance clothing.
