Royal weddings are known for not cutting costs.
The “wedding of the century” of Prince Charles and Princess Diana would cost today’s money $ 110 million. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle served a lemon and elderflower cake worth $ 71,600 at their reception. And for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s big day, security alone cost the couple an estimated $ 33 million.
Many royal wedding dresses also come with six-digit price tags that designers take months to create. Even dresses that appear to be reasonably priced – like the Queen’s $ 42,000 dress from 1947 – would be much more expensive today, adjusted for inflation.
Here are nine of the most expensive wedding dresses royals have worn, from the cheapest to the most expensive.
