Royal wedding guests are selling their official Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gift bags for thousands of dollars on eBay.

After the nuptials, Oliver listed her free goodie bags on eBay and sold it three days later for $28,600 (£21,400), according to MailOnline.

The tote bag includes a giant gold chocolate coin, bottle of water, a tin of biscuits and fridge magnet all inscribed with Harry and Meghan’s initials and imprinted with the official wedding stamp. Some bags contain the original greeting letter that was given to the guests.
