The petition of the Republic, a political organization that is against the monarchy, is already more than eleven thousand times signed. The wedding of Eugenie, the youngest daughter of prince Andrew, and Jack Brooksbank going to the British some two million pounds (2.2 million euros) in costs, especially because of the security. Republic states that a royal wedding is a private, ’that is being packaged as a national occasion’. ”The royal family used weddings as a pr and expect that the taxpayers pay the bill for a large part of the costs.”
Moreover, the organization, the role of Eugenie too small. The ninth in line of succession to the throne, the princess has no official duties. Her wedding is, in contrast to that of her cousin prince Harry in may, not broadcast live on Uk television. “And yet calls the royal family, us an expensive wedding.”
Republic is of the opinion that the royal family itself must be running for all the costs of the wedding. The organization also wants ’full disclosure’ about the cost. Before Harry with Meghan married went similar sounds. Which were ignored. The wedding of the duke and duchess of Sussex, who have their hands full with obligations in the name of queen Elizabeth, but it cost the British an estimated more than 30 million pounds (33.7 million euro).
