Meghan Markle And Prince Harry's Home Reno Cost Tax Payers $3 Million

We love a home renovation moment. Every young couple dreams of their perfect, forever home. Of course, not every young couple is handed a royal cottage from the mid-1800's but alas, such is life.

Frogmore Cottage, where Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be raising baby Archie, needed a ~bit~ of a spruce up.

A Buckingham Palace source spoke with People to reveal some behind the scenes info about the luxury space.

"While the British taxpayer has paid for the overall renovation costs through the Queen’s annual Sovereign Grant, Buckingham Palace figures released Monday show it cost the public around $3 million."

However, anything that's "movable" (i.e curtains, furnishings) have been paid for by Harry and Meghan themselves.

Harry and Meghan have also had to pay out of pocket for anything deemed too expensive for the public to pay for.

This includes an upgraded kitchen, bathroom, fitted wardrobes and flooring.

For some perspective, Prince William and Kate Middleton's renovations to Kensington Palace cost over five million dollars back in 2014.


I guess that 3 milli isn't THAT bad?
