Some guests invited for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding are already cashing in by selling their gift bags on eBay for £400 or more.

The canvas bags inscribed with the couple’s initials were given to the 1,200 non-VIPs invited to spend the day outside St George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle on Saturday.

 

Each one was packed with a giant chocolate coin, a tin of shortbread, a fridge magnet and a voucher for 20 per cent off in the castle shop to enjoy on the day. A bottle of Windsor Castle water and a wedding programme were also included.

But hours after the royal wedding, dozens of the so-called Community Champions invited to the wedding started auctioning these free gifts off to the highest bidder. MailOnline has found at least 25 listings ranging from between £25 and £420.

One later claimed they would donate the cash to charity but had initially “forgotten” to mention it on their eBay posting.

It also emerged that an eBay seller is auctioning off PDFs of the royal wedding order of service and, surprisingly, more than ten people have bought them for a £5 each.  This is despite the same thing being free to download via the royal family’s website.
