Princess Eugenie and Jack’s royal wedding should be paid for by the Royal Family. And it’s not us, who are saying this. Well, it’s the British who are saying this.
According to thousands of angry British taxpayers, they shouldn’t pay for the royal wedding.
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will tie the knot on October 12. But, outraged taxpayers are calling for the House of Commons to urge the Government to commit no public money to the wedding.
They are also calling on the Government to publish a report of all costs to taxpayers.
There was a petition that was launched by Republic, a campaign group which works to build support for the abolition of the monarchy. This particular petition currently has over 7,500 signatures.
In full, the petition reads as:-
“This petition calls upon the House of Commons to urge the Government to ensure the highest standards of openness and transparency relating to the funding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding”.

Taxpayers were outraged.
They were angry when it was revealed Princess Eugenie’s wedding will cost the public in the region of £2 million. Most of which will be spent on security.
The British royal family is expected to pay for the rest of the wedding and the reception costs. When Harry and Meghan married in May, it was reported the wedding cost in excess of £35 million.
Around £31 million of this sum was spent on the security. The price of royal weddings allegedly covers officers’ overtime pay, holiday cancellations, and requests for extra patrols.

The security at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding was believed to include rooftop snipers, undercover police officers and a drone destroyer too.
A Republic spokesperson was also seen saying: “Charging one royal wedding to the taxpayer is bad enough. But, two costly royal weddings this year is crossing a line”.
