Meghan Markle's Most Expensive Royal Outfits to Date




Joining the royal family is no easy feat. New manners must be learned, foods are restricted, and most importantly, an entirely updated wardrobe is a must. Before her HRH status, former actress Meghan Markle had a cool-girl, California vibe to her clothing choices. She loved to Instagram her latest outfits and show off her toned legs, but now that she's having regular rendezvous with the queen, all of that is a thing of the past. However, what she lost in the freedom to wear shorts and sleeveless shirts, she gained in a show-stopping designer wardrobe. Yup -- ever since she started making public appearances with Prince Harry, she's upped her fashion game.

Everything she has to wear now needs to follow those strict royal protocols, so what better excuse for buying designer styles than that? In the last couple of months, Meghan has stepped out in custom Givenchy, Stella McCartney, and Carolina Herrara ... just to name a few.

And yes, her budget is out of control. Since her engagement to Prince Harry, the duchess has worn about $1 million worth of clothes, and it's also reported that Prince Charles is footing the bill for all of that. That's some father-in-law.

Although Meghan hasn't been a royal long enough to tell if she's going to follow in Kate Middleton's footsteps and rewear a lot of her pieces, with clothes as expensive as this, we certainly hope she plans on digging back into her closet from time to time. Until then, we'll enjoy her extravagance while it lasts. Here are 20 of Meghan's most expensive royal outfits to date.


WEDDING DRESS #1

Meghan's debut wedding dress, designed by Givenchy, was reported to cost a hefty $265,000, which could also buy someone a house ... but you know, priorities.


HER PANTSUIT

Meghan paired a $1,995 Alexander McQueen jacket with $795 pants and called it a day.


WEDDING DRESS #2

The duchess's Stella McCartney reception dress came in a little under her first wedding gown and cost roughly $157,000.


CUSTOM GIVENCHY ... AGAIN

The dress Meghan wore for her first solo outing with the queen had a nice little price tag of $18,000.


TROOPING THE COLOR

This Carolina Herrera bateau neck gown is estimated to have cost $4,000.


OCEANIA EXHIBITION


For her first solo engagement, Meghan stepped out in another Givenchy black dress that cost around $3,200.



THE TRENCH DRESS

The House of Nonie trench coat dress that Meghan wore to the opening of the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition cost $824 ... so cheaper, but not by much.


CAROLINA HERRERA DENIM DRESS

Meghan's choice for Prince Harry's charity polo match cost around $2,190 -- and that's just the dress.


SIMPLE YET CHIC

Meghan dropped another $790 with her first post-wedding outing dress by Goat Fashion.


DIOR LBD
Hold onto your hats, ladies and gents. Meghan's Dior gown for the RAF 100 event comes in at a lovely $10,000. Her accompanying earrings and shoes bring the total to $112,000 -- which almost rivals the cost of one of her wedding gowns.


THE ENGAGEMENT PHOTO

In her and Harry's official engagement photo, Meghan's Ralph & Russo sheer gown cost the royal family about $75,000. Seems like a nice "welcome to the fam" to us.
