Princess Eugenie’s reported £2m wedding bill – which is being footed by taxpayers – should be paid by her father, a Labour MP has said. Chris Williamson has demanded the “fabulously wealthy” Prince Andrew, Duke of York, stump up for the mammoth chit – which has been heavily criticised. Princess Eugenie is ninth in line to the throne and carries out no royal duties.
It's likely Eugenie will want to avoid being compared to her cousin's brides' by opting for a completely different silhouette and designer.
Introducing The Royal Box, Yahoo UK's brand new show on all things royal. Presented by Kate Thornton, episode six features Diana's former bodyguard, Ken Wharfe. Charged with protecting the Princess for five years, until her separation from Prince Charles, Wharfe also oversaw William and Harry’s protection during their early years. Wharfe discusses Diana’s desperate, and ongoing, desire for normality and the royal family’s “hatred” of the press. Elsewhere, royal correspondent Richard Palmer and journalist and royal biographer Claudia Joseph discuss the palace’s handling of the latest Thomas Markle interview and what kind of Queen the Duchess of Cambridge will one day be. Plus, we look at what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have planned for the remainder of the summer.
There are rumours Amal and George Clooney will be attending their second royal wedding of the year - which means they're sure to serve up another great style moment.
This is a clip from episode six of The Royal Box. Watch the full episode on Yahoo UK from 12pm BST on Friday 17th August.
Meghan Markle's father, Thomas, claims he hung up on Prince Harry after a heated phone call - and claims Sunday's interview will be his last regarding the royal.
Meghan Markle's mother Doria Ragland is reportedly "preparing to move to the UK" to be closer to her daughter. The 61-year-old could be making the move as soon as next month to be closer to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Express reported. Ms Ragland was the only member of the bride's family to attend the royal wedding in May.
From Grace Kelly to Princess Beatrice (and even the Queen), there's quite a tradition of royals on stage. From Town & Country
From £1 million travel bills to £30 million security bills, royal spending appears to be at an all-time high - and it's time we had a conversation about it, say royal experts.
Every June, a full report on royal finances is published - but republicans often think it doesn't ring true. Republic, a group that campaigns for a democratic alternative to the monarchy, says the actual cost of the Windsors is £334 million a year - some 10 times the amount the royal family publishes. "We see the biggest questions about royalty often about money," historian Kate Williams tells Yahoo UK during episode five of 'The Royal Box'. "When Windsor Castle burned down, it came out that it was going to be paid for by the tax payer. There was a huge outcry that the tax payer shouldn't have to pay. "This comes up again and again when we need renovations and it will come up when Harry and Meghan ask for £5 million or whatever they want when renovating their apartments. There will be a conversation about it and I think it's right there's a conversation. "We need to think about royals and their spending and it needs to be properly looked at."
