How much does a royal wedding cost to insure in the UK?

[Apr. 28]

Prince William and Kate Middleton getting married is one of the biggest media stories since the tragic marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer. Scores of journalist from around the globe are lining the streets of London at this hour looking for a unique story angle to tell. As far as royal wedding trivia goes, most of the bio stories are about Kate Middleton and her family. As far as weddings go, they are not the cheapest occasion and can cost a fortune for even the thriftiest of couples. While in the United States it is a custom for the family of the bride to foot the bill for the wedding, in the UK — at least for Prince William — it will be his family paying the larger share of the wedding bill.

Why?

Because the royal wedding will have a viewing gallery of millions as cameras from all corners of the globe converge on Westminster Abbey, London, on April 29th, 2011 — and security alone will be an enormous bill to pay. However, when it comes to planning events of such a great magnitude as a wedding — royal or otherwise — sometimes it pays to spend a few extra dollars to protect the day.

The Royal Family are not known for their austerity measures, so their need for insurance could save them from a disaster in front of the world’s prying eyes. That is where an insurance agent quote can come in handy — and why we here at GCN have welcomed a special guest post from Autonet Insurance to help us quote some fast fact and historical trivia about the cost to insure a royal wedding in the UK.

The blank invitation shown to a reporter for the London newspaper, The Mail on Sunday, was almost identical to the authentic invites — missing only two dotted lines beneath where the names of the guests are written. In exchange for the black market goods, the man asked for 2,000 pounds ($3,200), also promising he could supply more.
