It was recently revealed Meghan Markle was paying for her very expensive wardrobe out of her own pocket until she officially marries Prince Harry in May.
And when the Suits actress becomes an official royal, she’ll be following the same etiquette rule as Kate Middleton, Prince William and Harry when it comes to dressing.
According to royal rules, no member of the family is allowed to accept free clothing.
And royal fans are more than delighted to hear that royal rule is in place.
In a poll created by OK! Online, 61 per cent of voters said no money should be spent on royal clothing as it can be “spent on better things”.
A further 25 per cent, however, revealed it’s part of a royal’s job to look smart so it wouldn’t be a problem for them to have free clothing.

A small minority were of the opinion that if they could expense it, then they should.
In 2011, the Duchess of Cambridge’s fashion assistant Natasha Archer revealed while they call in a number of looks for Kate – who is heavily pregnant with royal baby number three – before an important event, they will return any that are unworn and then pay for the chosen garment.
However, as Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mum is married to Prince William, the price tag is classed as an expense for their pubic lives, meaning it comes out of their royal salary.
At this time, Meghan is reportedly paying for her own outfits as she isn’t technically entitled to that privilege yet.
This year alone, it’s reported Prince Harry’s wife to be has already worn nearly £20,000 worth of looks.
Her wardrobe so far includes a sophisticated Alexander McQueen suit and a white Amanda Wakeley coat that cost nearly £900.
