Will the cost of Meghan Markle's designer fashions drain the royal family coffers?

Prince Harry's new wife has received praise for her beautiful outfits as she makes public appearances for the Palace.

But the price tag is already high just two months after the wedding!, as the Daily Mail has reported.

Plus, the former Suits stare is reportedly spending much more on finery than her sister-in-law, Prince William's wife Kate Middleton!

Markle has racked up bills of about $205,000 (in U.S. conversion from British pounds) for just 15 outfits, the Mail has reported.

According to the publication's royal experts, Markle perhaps was already gifted some gowns by designers when she acted on the TV show Suits.

But the Mail noted that it's against royal protocol to accept freebies, so now, her official wardrobe will be paid for from Harry's dad Prince Charles' Duchy of Cornwall estate. Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton also get clothes paid for by that same pot of millions.

Sources believe Markle, 37, may also be borrowing garments for special occasions.

Plus, her adoring husband Harry, 33, could also be picking up the tab, as he is worth nearly $40 million dollars.

Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has performed admirably in all her royal events so far, including a day at Ascot, a family wedding and, her first foreign tour.

She's had to look her best to sit by the Queen!

These days, Markle's wardrobe contains clothes from such famed fashion houses as Dior, Givenchy, Prada and Chanel.

She hasn't worn a single garment in public more than once.

Meanwhile, William's wife, Kate, reportedly spent around $157,000 on clothes for the entire year of 2017 (when she was, for several months, pregnant with the couple's third child, Louis, born this April).

The year before that, in 2016, Middleton, who has three kids with William, wore about $132,000 worth of outfits for the whole year.

Recently, Markle turned heads in a bright yellow dress at a London reception for young people from around the UK.

The curve-hugging frock was made by American designer Brandon Maxwell, who has worked with Lady Gaga.

It's clear Markle's Deal Or No Deal days are just a memory now!
