Meghan Markle’s lawful workforce is saying that her wedding day to Prince Harry brought in £1 billion in tourism revenue, considerably off-location the documented £32 million price tag of the affair.
The Everyday Mail studies that the new figures came in as portion of the most new filings in the 38-year-previous Markle’s circumstance against the Mail on Sunday. They recommend that Uk taxpayers footed the extensive majority — £30 million — of the shindig’s overall cost, most of which went to protection, with the church provider, bouquets and reception paid out for by the Royal Family.
