Royal Wedding Guests Selling Gift Bags on eBay Days After Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Nuptials
Lucky guests who attended Prince Harry's nuptials to Meghan Markle are selling their gift bags for lucrative prices
Harry and Meghan, the newly minted Duke and Duchess of Sussex, invited 600 people to attend their wedding at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
While the couple said their vows in front of Queen Elizabeth and other members of the royal family, including mother of the bride Doria Ragland, the two also invited 1,200 people to gather outside of the chapel to witness their wedding ceremony.
Those outside the chapel were given commemorative gift bags full of goodies such as a gold wrapped chocolate coin with the couple’s initials, a water bottle, shortbread, a magnet featuring the wedding date and the initials “H” and “M,” as well as a coupon to a local store.
Some people, however, are now attempting to make a profit of the gift by listing the bags on eBay for a pretty penny.
One user placed their gift bag on sale for about $2,762 on the website.

Royal photographer James Whatling shared a photo of the bag on Twitter, calling the gift a “lovely touch.”
“The wedding was fabulous,” one guest tells PEOPLE. “The really nice touch was the goodie bag everyone was given together with a copy of the service.”
Kensington Palace said in a March statement that Harry and Meghan invited 2,640 people into the Windsor grounds to watch their arrivals.
“They want their Wedding Day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations too,” the statement read.
