Yes, whenever we hear that a couple in the royal family is engaged, we eagerly await the date of the big day to be announced so that we cancel all our plans to witness the spectacle.

From the flowers, to the venue, and of course the main question of what the bride will be wearing – we can’t get enough.

Taking that into consideration we thought we’d take a look at the most expensive royal wedding dresses of all time. Without further ado…

7. Queen Elizabeth

Back in 1947, the Queen married husband Duke of Edinburgh, Philip Mountbatten in a lovely ceremony.

As she’s the Queen, of course she splashed the cash on an extravagant gown.

The gown was designed by Norman Hartnell which saw the finest Chinese silk with a gorgeous lace neckline that was also used in the long veil.

Overall the dress was estimated at around £30,000.

6. Sarah Ferguson

Marrying Prince Andrew in 1986, the gorgeous Sarah Ferguson opted for an ivory duchess satin dress which was created by Linda Cierach and believed to have cost £35,000.

The dress was adorned with intricate beadwork which left the dress looking as sophisticated and elegant as she is.

Just like the Queen, Sarah opted for a long veil which reached 17-foot and was embroidered with the initials A and S.

5. Meghan Markle

Usually we’re accustomed to seeing all the lace and intricate details on the dresses of the royal brides, however Meghan chose to keep it chic with her £110,000 Givenchy dress.

All the details were saved for her 16-foot long veil which the makers spent around 3,900 hours hand sewing all the immaculate symbolism into it.

On the veil we saw each of the national flowers of the 53 commonwealth countries represented so elegantly.

4. Princess Diana

One of, if not the most iconic wedding dresses in history, is none other than the ever-so lovely Princess Diana.

Diana married Prince Charles in 1981 and it was one that would go down in history, not only for the drama that followed with the relationship but the dramatics of the 25-foot train that Diana wore.

The dress was created by the Emanuel’s and is valued to be worth £151,000.

3. Princess Eugenie

One of our personal favourites was when Princess Eugenie married her sweetheart Jack Brooksbank in 2018.

The beautiful brunette wore a £200,000 gown by Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos.

The princess oozed glamour but there was one element of the dress that people praised her for.

Eugenie opted for an open back which showcased her scar from her scoliosis surgery.

2. Kate Middleton

Of course, the ever so wonderful Kate Middleton takes the second spot with her £250,000 perfect dress.

Kate designed the gown alongside Sarah Burton who worked for Kate’s go-to designer Alexander McQueen.

Even though the stunning brunette opted for a smaller veil, the impact came from the nine-foot long train which was adorned with 58 subtle buttons along it.

She may not be someone who you are necessarily familiar with but she is definitely known for her impeccable style.

In 2004, Queen Letizia married King Felipe and wore a gold embroidered gown designed by royal couturier Manuel Pertegaz which is said to have cost a whopping £6million.

No matter your taste or style, you have to admit that when the royals take to the aisle they know how to tick all the style boxes.
