Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Princess Eugenie are being criticized for their desire to live large just like some celebrities.

Janet Street-Porter, a journalist for Daily Mail, said the royals should think of a plan B once the public has had enough when it comes to paying for things such as the royal wedding.

Taxpayers shell out huge sums of money to make royal weddings a successful event, but this doesn’t mean that everyone is happy to do so. Street-Porter noted that Prince Harry, Markle, and Princess Eugenie shouldn’t live like reality TV stars because television companies are not the ones that pay for their needs.

“Well done, Eugenie, hard-working taxpayers are going to pay millions of money which could buy playgrounds, clinics or even affordable homes, to enable a bloke who flogs booze to ponce about in a coach surrounded by footmen and flunkeys,” she wrote.

In related news, the journalist also praised Queen Elizabeth II for her kindness and humility but said that the younger royals have not acquired the same traits.

“Unless they get a grip on the real world outside fairytale castles and carriages, the next generation could squander the goodwill the Queen has carefully nurtured, which – up to now – allowed the (much poorer) public to accept the extraordinary costs of running the royal firm,” she said.

It has been reported that taxpayers will be shouldering the security costs ahead and during Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding. The couple will tie the knot on Oct. 12 at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Prior to their nuptials, security officers will be employed in and around Windsor to check the area and avoid possible breaches on the wedding day. Following the wedding ceremony, Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank have decided to go on a carriage procession around Windsor, and this will require more security personnel.

Other than their work on the wedding itself, police officers will also be paid overtime fees and will be given allowances. All of these costs will come from the pockets of taxpayers.

Labor MP’s Chris Williamson told Mirror, “It really is an outrage.”
