New information has been revealed about the cost of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding back in May and the numbers will have you picking your jaw up off of the floor.

Express UK released a break-down of numbers from the big day, which reportedly amounted to a total of £32 million. That’s almost $53.5 million if you do the math. But it’s not the cost alone that’s shocking, it’s the breakdown of what went into it.

Next to the massive amount of money that was spent on security — a reported £30 million — the “Payment to council” fee was the most expensive royal wedding cost. This came to £1,084,512 and went towards, “stewarding, crowd control barriers, big screens, waste disposal, barriers and associated costs.”

Meghan’s wedding dress is also up there on the list. Her custom Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy gown came to a casual £390,000. That’s around $650,000 for a dress that she will wear once. By comparison, her sister-in-law Kate Middleton reportedly spent £250,000 on her gown.

Then comes the costly PA system which amounted to £232,810 alone. This important — yet extremely expensive — feature ensured that those who were not one of the 600 people who got to attend the service were able to hear what was happening inside the chapel at Windsor Castle.

Other fees that racked up the royal wedding bill? A £14,081 charge for flags and banners (huh?!), £3,875 for staff travel and £2,907 for accreditation passes.

Bottom line? If you want to marry a prince, you’ll have to pay the price.
