It looks like the British royal family is pulling out all the stops for Prince Harry's wedding to actress Meghan Markle

The Daily Mail claims Meghan will wear a handstitched gown created by designers Ralph & Russo.

The dress will reportedly cost a whopping £100,000 (around R1,7-million). 

Prince Harry and his family will allegedly be footing the bill. 

‘It sounds a lot but this is the wedding of the year and hundreds of hours of manpower have gone into making it, almost all by hand,’ a source told the publication. 

Meghan is a big fan of Ralph & Russo.

She wore one of their gowns for her official engagement photographs. That dress cost around £55,000.

Kensington Palace revealed last week that Harry will not see Meghan's dress until she walks down the aisle. The couple will also not see each other the night before their big day. 

The palace also confirmed Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, will walk her down the aisle. The news came days after Meghan's estranged half-brother Thomas Jr. claimed that she did not plan to invite her father to her wedding. 

The 'Suits' actress' mother Doria Ragland will also have a special role on the day. She will travel with Meghan to St George’s Chapel - where the couple will be married in front of 600 guests. 

Meghan and Harry are set to tie the knot on May 19.
