The wedding of the 21st-century is just 23 days away — and the ceremony and reception may be the most expensive in history!

Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s April 29 nuptials will be nothing short of spectacular! Ok! Magazine reports that the wedding will cost a cool $34 million — definitely a wedding fit for a king!

The ceremony will take place at Westminster Abbey, where some of the more than $800,000 worth of flowers will decorate the chapel. Other arrangements will grace Buckingham Palace, where the reception will be held in 19 staterooms.

The night before the wedding, Kate and her family are expected to stay at the luxurious Goring Hotel in London for three nights. Guests at the wedding reception will be served a fruit cake, chocolate biscuit cake and other fine foods that will cost $150,000! And, there will be Bollinger Champagne flowing the entire night –the Royals are expected to plop down $60,000 for the bubbly.

And what about the bling? Kate, who wears Prince William’s late mother Princess Diana’s ring, will be given an $11,000 wedding band of Welsh gold.

The largest cost by far will be the estimated $32 million to be spent on security — thousands of police officers, military personnel and private bodyguards will protect the guest, and the one million people who are expected to throng the area.

Kate’s parents are helping out with a bit of the cost — Ok! reports that the Middletons will pay for Kate’s $434,000 wedding dress!

I simply could not go away your website before suggesting that I actually enjoyed the standard information an individual provide for your visitors? Is going to be back often in order to investigate cross-check new posts

I am not surprised. Kate’s bouquet alone also cost a great deal as it was made out of lily of the valley. Those are little precious and extremely expensive flowers! Her bouquet and dress looked very elegant though.

I don’t understand these people .I mean why do they even exist ? They have done absolutely NothinG to be worthy of all of this money.They just take it from the goverment because they are ”royal”or sth. If they were indeed then they wouldn’t take all this money from the citizens who expect this money to be spent for public works. Sorry 4 bad english..Have a nice day :)

“The night before the wedding, Kate and her family are expected to stay at the luxurious Goring Hotel in London for three nights.”

Not that Hollywoodlife has decent writers in any case, but how exactly are Kate and her family going to stay at the hotel for THREE NIGHTS the night before the wedding?” Hmmm…

The Windsors are from German background, which is why they changed their name during the War, so this is a whole lot of crap and a waste of Tax payer money to see a bunch of SNOBS rubbing money in peoples face who can’t even afford the bare neccessities.

Don’t they have a country to finance? Is this coming out of the coffers of the public, or the royal savings account?
