Guests who attended the Royal nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's went home with not only a lifetime of memories but also a gift bag filled with goodies.


In many places of the world, the bride and groom give a souvenir to their guests as a sign of gratitude for being part of their wedding. And of course, the royal wedding couldn’t be the exception.

In addition to the 600 guests who watched the ceremony inside St George’s Chapel, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex invited 2,640 members of the public to the grounds of Windsor Castle to be part of the memorable day.

Harry and Meghan chose to give to their guests a bag with some essentials to help them stay hydrated and nourished throughout the ceremony. These gift bags featured the couple’s initials, their wedding date and the location of the ceremony.

The royal goody bags, which came in the form of a canvas tote bag complete with a bright blue handle. Each tote contained paraphernalia relating to the royal couple, as reported by Hello Magazine


The goodie bags carried a large gold chocolate coin also embossed with Meghan and Harry's initials, commemorative shortbread, a fridge magnet, a bottle of water, and a voucher for 20 percent off the Middle Ward gift shop in Windsor.

The Community Champions who obtained the official invitation to the Royal Wedding included charity workers, local volunteers and people who made their cities, towns, and villages a better place to live.

Members of the media gave followers a closer look at the goodie bags on social media, including royal photographers Mark Cuthbert and James Whatling, who shared photos.


"A lovely touch for the guests in the Castle for today's #RoyalWedding, complete with water and a huge Harry and Meghan chocolate coin," Whatling wrote.

However, some of the gift bags from the wedding of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex were put online for sale. Several auctions appeared up on eBay, with one listing even reaching more than £1,000, on the same day as the wedding. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
