Days ago, it was revealed that some royal wedding guests were seen trying to sell off their royal wedding gift bags on eBay.
Well, one of the royal wedding guests has found a buyer willing to have her wedding gift bag for a whopping sum of £21,400.
Claire Oliver, 31, was one of the 1,200 non-VIPs invited to spend the day outside St George’s Chapel as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married on Saturday. She is from Cambridge but lives in south-east London and works in HR for Troup Bywaters, an engineering group heavily involved in offering apprenticeships to get more young people in work – a cause close to Harry’s heart.
On the day of the wedding, she filmed herself twirling with joy in the grounds of St. George Chapel and tweeted: “I got to watch the royal wedding right outside Windsor Castle in this amazing setting. Such an amazing day #Golden ticket #Royal connections.”
Hours after the wedding, she posted her free commemorative gift bag on eBay. She has now gotten a buyer who bought it for £21,400.
The canvas bags inscribed with the Harry and Meghan’s initials contained a souvenir wedding order of service and welcome letter from Meghan and Harry, other freebies included a bottle of Windsor Castle water, a giant chocolate coin, a tin of shortbread and a voucher for 20 per cent off in the castle shop.
