People are selling their royal wedding gift bags on eBay for £28,000

Lucky Guests at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding have made as much as £28,000($30,000 / INR 2,526,771.08)  by selling their gift bags on eBay

Dozens of the goodie bags from the couple’s big day have appeared on the auction site, with some reaching five figures.

The goodie bags were handed out to the 1,200 people who received invitations to gather outside St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Many of the sellers had clearly planned to do it in advance because they photographed the items outside St George's Chapel to ensure they looked genuine on eBay.

HR manager Claire Oliver is just one of more than 25 people that have cashed in on the royal wedding goodie bag.

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.

Which contained a souvenir order of service and a welcome letter from Harry and Meghan.

It also included shortbread, a commemorative magnet, Windsor Castle water, a large chocolate coin, shortbread and a voucher for the castle shop.
