Meghan was being MEAN to tax payers who paid for wedding when she claimed she was married earlier

Meghan Markle has been accused of being ‘mean’ to UK taxpayers about her wedding argument, saying, ‘We paid for it!’

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex disclosed to Oprah Winfrey that they “married” three days before their televised wedding at Windsor Castle.


The Beckhams, Idris Elba, and Elton John were among the guests at the star-studded wedding on May 19, 2018, but Meghan claimed the pair had already had their own private wedding.


“You know, three days before our wedding, we got married.”  In their unprecedented CBS interview, she told Winfrey, “No one knows that.”


“But we called the archbishop and we just said, ‘Look, this thing, this spectacle is for the world but we want our union between us.’ So, the vows that we have framed in our room are just the two of us in our back yard with the archbishop of Canterbury.”


“Just the three of us,” Prince Harry said.




Meghan’s claim regarding her two weddings during her interview with Oprah Winfrey was “a bit mean” to Britons who loved and paid for her public nuptials, according to commentator Charlotte Griffiths. The Duchess of Sussex’s declaration that she was already married three days before heading down the aisle of St George’s Chapel speaks volumes on how she views her public wedding, according to the Mail on Sunday’s diary editor.


She said, “I think what it really showed was, legalities aside, she just wanted us to know that she didn’t value the main wedding that we all saw and paid for and showered with praise and affection and looked forward to – we, the public, we humble serve.


“And while that’s in a way very sweet and touching, it’s sort of a bit mean to the rest of us who really cared about that day and, let’s face it, pay for it,” she said on Mail+’s Palace Confidential.”


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Wedding Cost


The estimated expense of the high-profile, broadcast wedding was £32 million, with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport paying £1.5 million with protection responsible for the remainder of the expenditure (£30 million of the £32 million spent).


The key elements of the ceremony, such as the church service, accompanying music, flowers, decorations, and the celebration afterwards, were paid for by the Royal Family.


Taxpayers paid the expense of security, which included a steel ring around Windsor and crowd control.


Clare Waight Keller’s dress, which cost an approximate £390,000, was worn by the Duchess of Sussex.






According to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry did marry three days before their wedding.



According to an Italian publication, Meghan Markle was incorrect when she said that she and Prince Harry married three days before their wedding.


During a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry’s wife revealed that the pair married days before their big and heavily advertised wedding day on May 18, 2019.


However, Archbishop Justin Welby announced that their official wedding date was May 18.


Welby informed La Repubblica that the legal wedding took place on Saturday.


“I signed the wedding certificate, which is a legal document, and I would have committed a serious criminal offense if I signed it knowing it was false,” he said. “So you can make what you like about it. But the legal wedding was on the Saturday. But I won’t say what happened at any other meetings.”
