There has been anger after taxpayers were hit with a multi-million bill for the security costs at a minor royal’s wedding.
A backlash has started after the cost to the public purse of the marriage of Princess Eugenie to Jack Brooksbank was revealed..
Her open-topped carriage ride through Windsor, requiring road closures, racked up a £2m policing bill – paid from the public purse.
Campaign group Republic hit out, saying: “If the royals want to turn another private wedding into a public PR exercise, they need to pay. The taxpayer needs to know who is funding what, where the money is coming from and the impact the wedding will have on local and police budgets.”
This is why we’re asking – do you agree? Should the public pay for royal weddings?
