Yup, as ever, people are fuming over something over on social media.

People are furious because of the expensive dress Meghan is wearing, as the dress in question is designed by English duo Ralph & Russo and is reported to have cost an eye-watering £56,000, according to the Mirror. Fucking hell.
The grown, described as a 'black tulle gown with silk organza skirt, hand appliquéd with silk tulle ruffles and embroidered with gold feather thread-work' for those of you who care, costs almost twice the average wage in the UK.
People took to Twitter to vent:
So, there's people starving and Meghan Markle wears a one time engagement dress that cost £56,000.- :yellow_heart:Didds:yellow_heart: (@Diddipops1) December 22, 2017
I thought I liked Meghan Markle not any more the best thing she can do now is auction that dress for charity- Elizabeth Lloyd (@Elizabe07420493) December 22, 2017
Not sure wearing a £56,000 dress for her engagement pictures will endear Meghan Markle to the British public!- Beverley Parker (@bevelynnparker) December 22, 2017
So apparently Meghan Markle's engagement photo shoot dress cost £45k - the same amount as my student loan debt- Angharad (@AJGallimore) December 22, 2017
The photos are gorgeous but I question the choice of an insanely expensive gown. Britain is still a painfully class conscious society. 1/2- Luxe Chronicles (@LuxeChronicles) December 21, 2017
One woman wrote on Facebook: "I think it's obscene that she would spend that kind of money particularly when she's been to countries to see what that kind of money could buy to help starving kids or vaccinate against disease."
But, what did they expect her to wear for her official engagement photos to an actual Prince? Also, it's important to remember that Meghan is a pretty successful actress and can probably afford to spend stupid money on dresses - it is a special occasion after all.
And, that designers are falling over themselves to gift the Royals with dresses, because it's good for their image, so there's a decent chance she was given this as a present or was allowed to borrow it for the day.
