The wedding was initially expected to cost around £750,000 and was set to be paid for by the couple’s parents, but security costs have more than doubled it to almost £2m

Mr Williamson, MP for Derby North, said: “There is no need to have such a glamorous event.

“Prince Andrew – who is fabulously wealthy with an estimated worth of £65m – should foot the bill himself.

Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank live in Kensington Palace at a vastly reduced rent
