Meghan Markle's £100,000 wedding dress revealed as royal bride will wear 'hand-stitched gown' paid for by Harry's family

The Daily Mail reports the Royal bride will walk down the aisle in a hand-stitched gown by British designers Ralph & Russo.

Meghan will reportedly wear the gown during the service and at a reception in St George's Hall, Windsor Castle, afterwards.

The heavily-beaded gown is expected to be seen by around one billion TV viewers as well as 600 guests at St George's Chapel, Windsor.

A source told the Mail the dress will cost around £100,000 and funded privately by Prince Harry and his family.

She will then change into a second dress for a later private reception hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House, Windsor Great Park.

The dress was revealed as Meghan's father was spotted getting fitted for his wedding suit.

The Sun revealed the 73-year-old spent 15 minutes getting sized up at a backstreet tailor’s near his Rosarito home.

Royal aides yesterday finally confirmed Thomas Markle Snr, 73, will fly from Mexico to give away Suits star Meghan as she weds Prince Harry on May 19.

Thomas and ex-wife Doria Ragland, 61, will meet the Queen and Prince Philip in the week before the ceremony in a fortnight’s time.

Flower girls and page boys will then get in the car with Meghan to be driven round to the West Door.

They will also be introduced to Prince Charles and Camilla, best man Prince William and Kate.

In a break from tradition, mum Doria will travel in the car with Meghan to Windsor Castle.

Once inside, Doria will get out and enter St George’s Chapel.

There the bridal party will be met by retired Hollywood lighting director Thomas, who will walk his daughter down the aisle.

A spokesman for Kensington Palace said: “Ms Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion.

"It’s very important to her that both her parents have roles in her wedding.”
