Royal wedding: Queen and Charles 'to pay their share' of the bill
Tim Ross and Gordon Rayner
"Charles's own wedding to Diana in 1981 cost an estimated £30 million, with thousands of police and Armed Forces personnel lining the streets to maintain order as 600,000 people gathered in London to watch.
"Even without some of the more lavish touches of 30 years ago - such as 10,000 pearls hand-sewn into Diana's gown, and 27 wedding cakes - the bill for next year's event could easily eclipse the costs incurred by Prince William's parents.
"Observers have suggested that the total will run into tens of millions of pounds, with one estimate putting the figure at £80 million for security alone."
