Kensington Palace says the wedding will be funded by the Royal Family, meanwhile Republic has published a petition calling for the UK government to commit "no public money to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and to call upon the government to publish a report of all costs to taxpayers."
According to Republic, the wedding won't be the "national celebration" some parts of Britain's main stream media think it is.
The organization is concerned the British taxpayer will end up paying for some, or most of it.
"Whether it's the cost of policing paid for directly by us, or costs of the wedding ceremony, paid for by the royals, the taxpayer still ends up paying," Republic state on its website.
The petition has almost reached 5,000 signatures.
