UK Prince Harry and his American fiancée Meghan Markle recently released a series of portraits by New York-based fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski to mark their engagement.
However, not everyone is happy with the images released – or rather, what Meghan chose to wear, reported Mirror.
The engagement photos show the Suits actor donning a Ralph and Russo couture dress from the Autumn Winter 2016/2017 collection.
The “black tulle gown with silk organza, hand appliquéd with silk tulle ruffles and embroidered with gold feather thread-work” cost a whopping £56,000.
People are outraged as it costs twice the average wage in the UK.
One woman posted on Facebook, “I think it’s obscene that she would spend that kind of money particularly when she’s been to countries to see what that kind of money could buy to help starving kids or vaccinate against the disease.”
Others also tweeted about Meghan’s choice of attire.

However, in Meghan’s defense, she was a working woman who might have paid for the dress from her own earnings.
There is also a possibility that the dress was on-loan from the designers or had been gifted to her as she would bring priceless publicity for them.
