This Is Why Meghan Markle Can't Accept Free Clothes

There are definitely perks to being a royal — but free clothing is not one of them.

Now that she's a soon-to-be royal, Meghan Markle has a whole host of style rules to follow. Granted, the California native has been known to break a few of those rules when the occasion calls (no tights? no problem!). But it seems that she'll have to be firm in sticking to the Palace's policy when it comes to accepting free designer clothing. 

According to People, Markle and Prince Harry themselves foot the bill for the future duchess' wardrobe. In other words, when Markle wore a $1,000 white coat earlier this week, that wasn't a gift from designer Amanda Wakely. 

Though she may not rely on anyone to pay for her spiffy threads, Markle does have help when it comes to putting together her enviable wardrobe. The former Suits actress allegedly has assistants who call in outfits from designers. After several options arrive, Markle decides which outfit she wants to wear, pays for it ... and returns the rest. (Just like us!) 

After her wedding to Prince Harry in May, the duchess' wardrobe expenses will be taken from a fund that Prince Charles gives to his sons and their respective wives. Since last year's fund reportedly contained close to five million dollars, we're guessing that Markle will have no problem footing the bill on several more designer pieces. 

And even if she weren't a royal, the stunner wouldn't be worrying about a clothing budget: She is said to have made $50,000 per episode by the end of her time of Suits
