Meghan Markle, 36, and Prince Harry, 33, are soon to marry, holding their wedding on May 19. While royal weddings are always lavish, Prince Harry and the Suits actress’s is expected to be very expensive.

Wedding planner Hamish Shephard, who is also planning the wedding of Meghan’s friend and reality TV star Millie Mackintosh and her fiancee Hugo Taylor, estimates the nuptials will cost £32 million.

There are a number of aspects of the wedding which are set to cost a bomb, including a £26,000 bill for sausage rolls.

Mr Shephard said: “They’ve invited 2,640 members of the public who will each be given a cup of tea and a sausage roll. If you’re assuming that’s £10 a head, that’s £26,000 on sausage rolls alone.”

Flowers will also set the couple back a fairly enormous sum – far more than the average Briton would plan to spend on their whole wedding.

It was recently announced that Meghan Markle’s parents will have a coat of arms designed before the big day.

The massive costs are largely down to the fact that Harry and Megs are hosting for a huge wedding party.

Mr Shephard said: “The biggest cost of a wedding is always determined by the number of guests. You have three costs: a third is on the venue, a third is on the food and drink and a third is on the other parts such as the dress and the photographer, etc.

“Every wedding has those elements and that’s where it can scale. Harry and Meghan are planning for 4,000 guests and multiple venues.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle initially hoped to have their reception at Frogmore House, but later decided on another venue.

However, there will still hold their reception at the stunning stately home, meaning two venues must be catered for.
