You Won’t Believe How Much Money Meghan Markle Spent on Clothes in 2018

Meghan Markle may be new to the royal family, but she has definitely mastered the classy royal style. When it comes to fashion in the family, people often look toward Kate Middleton for inspiration. But Meghan has quickly developed her own style that fans are growing to love. However, being a royal doesn’t come cheap. Here’s how much the Duchess of Sussex spent on clothes in 2018.

Meghan and Kate have different styles, yet fans love both

Before Meghan joined the royal family, Kate was unequivocally known as the royal family’s fashion icon. Kate’s outfits are always classic and sophisticated, but she captures people’s attention with her ability to repeat outfits and make them look even better the second time. People love the down-to-earth touch Kate adds to her wardrobe whenever she steps out in something she’s worn before. And now that Meghan is in the family, people have two style icons to admire. But both women have a very different wardrobe — especially when it comes to cost.

Meghan has reportedly taken fashion tips from Kate

Meghan and Kate have supposedly been at odds ever since Meghan married into the family. However, it’s unclear how true those feud rumors actually are. Some unnamed sources say that there have been major problems between the two duchesses, while others say they aren’t best friends but there is no bad blood at all. It’s likely that the two don’t actually have any problems, and Meghan has reportedly even asked Kate for a few fashion tips. The women may have different styles, but Kate understands how royals should dress since she isn’t new to this, so she likely just gave Meghan some pointers.

Meghan reportedly spent more than $500,000 on clothing in 2018

Meghan didn’t spare any money when it came to her 2018 wardrobe. According to Allure, the duchess reportedly spent a whopping $500,000 on her wardrobe last year — and that’s not including her $135,000 custom wedding dress. Meghan is a big fan of Givenchy outfits and Cartier jewelry, so it makes sense that her clothing and accessories bill was that high. However, not everyone was thrilled to know how much money Meghan has spent. Throughout the year, the public has begun to question the duchess’ character, and knowing she dropped half a million dollars on clothing probably doesn’t help her positivity rating among the haters.

In comparison, Kate only spent $85,000

Kate’s claim to fame is repeating outfits. And while her closet is stacked with incredibly expensive things too, it’s clear she doesn’t care quite as much about brands as Meghan does. Kate reportedly spent $85,000 on her wardrobe last year, which is a steep cut of what Meghan spent. And Princess Eugenie, a royal cousin, reportedly spent just under $40,000 during the year. It’s important to note that although Meghan went crazy with the royal credit card, Kate and Eugenie still spent a pretty penny each. It looks like no matter who you are, nobody in the royal family cuts corners when it comes to new clothes.
