Weddings are expensive. Royal weddings, as you would expect, are in a different ballpark altogether. As British royal Prince Harry and his fiancé Meghan Markle plan to tie the knot, the world is anticipating all the details of their big day – from the flowers they will choose to how much they will spend.
