People are already cashing in and out of the royal gifts they received on Harry and Meghan’s big day. According to a report by dailymail.com, Claire Oliver, 31, was one of the 1,200 non-VIPs invited to spend the day outside St George’s Chapel on Saturday and given the enviable chance to see the newlyweds and their famous guests up close.
Miss Oliver, who is from Cambridge but lives in south-east London, 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 tweeted: ‘I got to watch the royal wedding right outside Windsor Castle in this amazing setting. Such an amazing day #Golden ticket #Royal connections’ and filmed herself twirling with joy in the grounds.
But hours later she had posted her free commemorative gift bag on eBay, which has now sold for £21,400.
The canvas bags inscribed with the couple’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.
Some have reached more than £30,000, it emerged today, concludes the report.
