Biographer Katie Nicholl told ET: “It does fall now, that she is married into the royal family, to the Prince of Wales…to cover the cost of her working royal wardrobe.
“It may be that Meghan contributed certainly some of the costs for either of those wedding dresses, or perhaps both of those wedding dresses, I believe was also picked up by the palace.
“Meghan is now an ambassador for the royal family. Look at the publicity she has brought in run up to the wedding. I’d argue that’s worth every penny.”
