The Royal Wedding countdown is almost up! As a result, anticipation is high and news outlets from around the world are camped outside Westminster Abbey. The question on everyone’s mind – how much will the Royal Wedding cost in total?

If you’re not sure about the conversion, we’ve done the math for you – it’s approximately $132 million! Yikes.
