Meghan Markle‘s royal outfits do not come cheap. The looks she’s worn on public appearances, since her engagement to Prince Harry to today, total to about $1 million, royal expert Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight.

Whereas before the wedding Meghan might’ve picked up the tab herself, now that she’s officially part of the royal family, Prince Charles is expected “to cover the cost of her working royal wardrobe,” Nicholl said.

Despite the steep costs, Nicholl said it’s worth it for the royal family to invest in Markle’s closet now that she’s “an ambassador” for the monarchy. “Look at the publicity she has brought in run up to the wedding. I’d argue that’s worth every penny,” she added.

However, Meghan might’ve “contributed certainly some of the costs” to either or both of her wedding dresses, which were heavier on the pockets, according to Nicholl. Below are some of the Duchess’ most memorable royal looks so far and their price tags, according to Entertainment Tonight.
