Prince Andrew should pay for the security for Princess Eugenie's royal wedding, according to Labour MP Chris Williamson.

Many are surprised that Princess Eugenie's upcoming royal wedding has become almost as extravagant as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day when she's only ninth-in-line to the throne. The next royal bride and his groom will also have a carriage procession from the chapel through Windsor High Street and the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The security bill for Princess Eugenie's wedding comes under "public safety" expensive and will be picked up by the taxpayer. However, Williamson said he believes that the Duke of York should pay for it as he is the father of the bride.

"There is no need to have such glamorous events," Williamson told Sky News (via Express). "Prince Andrew - who is fabulously wealthy with an estimated worth of £65m - should foot the bill himself."

Williamson added that the royal family should not expect the public to pay for it. Also, he insisted that it's just "perfectly adequate" for them to have less lavish ceremonies.

A similar concern was aired during Prince Harry and Markle's wedding. According to Republic, a membership-based pressure group, the public should not spend a dime on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's nuptials as weddings are private events, so taxpayers should not shoulder it.

"We petition the U.K. parliament to commit no public money to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and to call upon the government to publish a report of all costs to taxpayers," the statement read.

"A royal wedding is a private, personal event, dressed up as a national occasion," the petition continued. "That lets the royals use the wedding as a PR exercise and to expect the taxpayer will pay a large part of the costs."

In related news, a number also questioned Prince Harry and Markle's decision to have a carriage wedding procession. According to one source, Prince William and Kate Middleton's carriage ride was understandable as they're the future king and queen. In addition, the route in Westminster was more challenging.

"William and Kate had a procession from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace, but they are a future king and queen," a source said, as per royal correspondent Camilla Tominey. "The Windsor proposition is much more complicated than the route down the Mall because it includes a high street with shops. Retailers can't be expected to close for the day, so that poses an additional problem for police. Unless a sterile zone is put in place it's going to be impossible to make the area completely secure. Frankly, the whole thing is a bit of a nightmare from a policing perspective."
