Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding, which was held at St. George’s Chapel, received 2,640 members of the public who watched the ceremony from the grounds of Windsor Castle.
While the simple fact of being there was enough, there was a surprise for the lucky few of them who received a proper invitation. The couple gave away tote bags with a bright blue handle that had the couple’s initials and the date of the wedding on it.
Apart from that, the location of the wedding was also emblazoned on the bag. It was not all, though, as they were filled with gifts, including a fridge magnet, branded chocolate, shortbread, a magnet and a bottle of Windsor Castle water.
Even though those souvenirs would have been enough, the bags also had the wedding program and a 20%-off voucher for the castle shop, reported Hello.
Many of those who got their wedding gifts took to their social media accounts to share what they have gotten. One of them was Royal photographer James Whatling, who posted a picture on Twitter showing the bag.
He captioned it pointing out that it was a ‘lovely touch’ for the guests. In his image, there was an invitation card that read: ‘The marriage of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales with Ms. Meghan Markle at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. Saturday, 19th May 2018. 12 noon.’
While seeing that many people in their wedding might have been surprising, they set that clear in a statement released on the Royal official website on April 10.
In that statement, it was revealed the names of some of those invited to the wedding, including David Gregory, Amelia Thompson, Saeed Atcha, and Amy Wright.
It was also shared that 200 guests from organizations in which Harry and Markle have a close association with, 100 pupils from local schools, and 500 members of the Royal Household would attend the ceremony.
