Prince Harry weds Meghan: The Kiss, Crowds Delight & Royal CelebrationA small number of gift bags given to guests at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding are being sold online.

Nine auctions can currently be found on the website eBay – with some listings reaching more than £1,000.

The bags were given to 2,640 members of the public invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle for the wedding on 19 May, but not the 600 chapel guests.

Contents of the bags include the order of service booklet and a tube of “handbag shortbread”.

One listing reads: “Don’t miss out on this limited once in a lifetime opportunity to have a piece of royal history.”

Other items given to the guests include a bottle of water, a chocolate coin, a fridge magnet, a badge and a 20% off voucher for the Windsor Castle gift shop.Royal wedding 2018: Guests sell gift bags onlineThe 600 guests invited into the chapel, including celebrities such as David and Victoria Beckham, Oprah Winfrey and George and Amal Clooney, were not given gift bags.
