Prince Harry: Weddings

Question for Treasury

UIN 135723, tabled on 13 April 2018

To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment he has made of the cost to public purse of the wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Answered on

The Government has not made an assessment of the costs. The Sovereign Grant, which is paid annually to Her Majesty The Queen to support Her official duties, will not be used to fund the wedding. Thames Valley Police are responsible for the policing of the operation and it is open for them to submit an application to the Home Office for Special Grant funding.
