Meghan Markle Has Worn A Royal Wardrobe Worth £750,000 In Just Two Months

She's been a duchess for less than two months, but Meghan Markle has already served some seriously glamorous regal looks from her designer and often bespoke wardrobe.

From her Givenchy wedding gown and recent printed Oscar de la Renta maxi, to that stunning Prada open-neck skirt suit and sheer blush Goat dress for her first public appearance post royal wedding, the royal has continued to show off her love for nude hues and sharp tailoring.

Now a royal expert has revealed the total sum of the 36-year-old’s royal wardrobe and, let’s just say, it doesn’t come cheap.

Author Katie Nicholl has told Entertainment Tonight that Meghan’s outfits since saying ‘I do’ to Prince Harry are worth upwards of £750,000.

‘It does fall - now that she is married into the Royal Family - to the Prince of Wales to cover the cost of her working wardrobe,’ she explained.

And while a six-figure sum of clothes worn for a handful of appearances may make us question our own bank balances, it’s worth noting that when you break down the star's looks it kind of makes sense.

Meghan’s boat-neck, long-sleeved white dress designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy is estimated to have cost around £387,000 to make, while her halter-neck sleeveless fishtail dress by Stella McCartney is thought to be worth £119,555.

While this price range might be out of reach for most brides, let's not forget that Meghan is now a member of a royal family with a net worth of over £383 million, so she’s able to splash the cash more so than your everyday bride-to-be.

For her first post-wedding appearance at the Prince of Wales' 70th birthday, the former actress wore a £590 The Flavia silk-crepe pencil dress by Goat and a blush pink dress Carolina Herrera off-the-shoulder dress estimated to cost £3,045 for the Trooping of the Colour.

Then came her oat-coloured Givenchy cape dress for her first solo appearance with the Queen in Cheshire, which is believed to cost £13,704, and an Oscar de la Renta gown for the wedding of Prince Harry’s cousin worth a staggering £4,568.

May we add that Markle’s outfit costs excludes her countless number of designer shoes, hats, bags, jewellery and bespoke outfits which don’t have a price tag.

While the fashion haul may seem a lot, Nicholl is quick to point out that Meghan’s expensive wardrobe is part of the job of being a royal.

‘Meghan is now an ambassador for the royal family. Look at the publicity she has brought in the run-up to the wedding. I'd argue that it's worth every penny,’ she added.

Meghan only has to step out in an outfit from a certain brand - Hiut, Marks & Spencer, Strathberry etc - and sparks a frenzied shopping spree across the world causing fashion houses to sell out of stock in minutes.

As a result, Meghan's choice of designer garments isn't only fashion savvy but a major business boon for retailers.

My view: Saint Meghan the "Humanitarian" is now a spendthrift, who has completely forgotten about the poor Rwanda kids she posed for photo-op with, for her big Humanitarian Portfolio she presented to Prince Harry during her second date. The second date, it’s when they start to learn about their shared interests, ideas, and goals — all the things that can bring them together, and Meghan Markle nailed it on that very second date as she's a good actress and saleswoman, also with her "Deal Or No Deal" background. All the media hype about the Meghan "Effect", I wonder who'll rush and buy a £13,000 dress that looks ordinary, or an ugly floral dress for £5,922, or dreadful engagement dress for £56,000 and Stella McCartney's halter neck dress for £119,555. Meghan has already spent over £750,000 in two months since she became Royal bride. It shows how greedy the Markles are, as they all want to grab, grab, and grab. Meghan spend money on very expensive designer outfits but refused to help her father Thomas financially, that's why the old man sold their private chat for thousands. Just take a look at her humanitarian photo-op, then you'll see how "Calculated, Strategic and a stager Meg is.
