Meghan Markle’s tourism boost claim REJECTED as ‘fiction’ – wedding was ‘net loss’ for UK | Royal | News

Republic campaigns for the monarchy to be abolished and the transition of Britain to a republic. The organisation’s CEO Graham Smith told Express.co.uk that there is no evidence that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s wedding provided an economic boost for Britain, despite claims it did from the Duchess of Sussex. Mr Smith claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding was a “net-loss” for UK taxpayers.   

Mr Smith said: “Meghan Markle is falling for the same spin that the royal household put out.

“There is no evidence at all that the monarchy ever bring money in from tourism.

“The idea that her wedding brought in £1billion is pure fiction.

“There just isn’t any evidence to support that whatsoever.

“It was a net loss for the British taxpayers and to try and justify spending public money on her wedding by making these rather weird claims is just another sign of their entitlement.”

Earlier this week a royal commentator stated that Meghan Markle was warned against marrying Prince Harry by her friends.

During the Royally Obsessed podcast, Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito discussed Meghan Markle‘s marriage to Prince Harry.

Ms Bowie questioned whether the tragedy that involved Princess Diana plays on the Duchess of Sussex’s mind.   

“This was because of all the complications of the Royal Family and joining the Royal Family brings with it.

“I just wonder if she was thinking of Diana when she said that.

“I am sure knowing what happened in that whole situation must way on them so much.

“I wonder if that is what she was referencing when she said that.”
