On November 16, 2010, the engagement of Kate Middleton and Prince William was announced. And almost immediately the date of the wedding was set. There were two dresses for the wedding: one for participation in the ceremony itself, and the other for the wedding dinner, which was arranged by the prince's grandmother, Elizabeth II.

About two thousand people were invited to the celebration at Westminster Abbey, among whom were world celebrities. For example, spouses Elton John and David Furnish, British Prime Minister David Cameron, spouses David and Victoria Beckham, photographer Mario Testino and others.

The royal wedding in Great Britain, and throughout the world, is still remembered today. For some, the celebration brought not only pleasant memories, but also earnings.

3 million pounds

Kim Kardashian and Chris Humphries

$ 10 million

The wedding of Kim Kardashian and basketball player Chris Humphries was a fairy tale: a snow-white Vera Wang dress, a $ 2 million Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring, smiling wedding guests - the perfect story for American television. Experienced businesswoman Kim sold exclusive video rights to the celebration to E! for one and a half million dollars. However, the marriage broke up after 72 days. The wife filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable contradictions." For Humphries, this was a bolt from the blue: for several months he unsuccessfully tried to return his wife, but after countless attempts he agreed to annul the marriage and large bonuses, insisting that he became a victim of the Kardashian TV show. It is still unknown if the basketball player managed to bail out the $ 7 million he hoped for. But Chris at least got money for the wedding ring: he sold it at an auction for 200 thousand dollars. By the way, Kim's next wedding with Kanye West cost a much more modest amount - three million dollars.
