For a brief moment, the city of Windsor was the centre of the world this weekend when American actress Meghan Markle married British Prince Harry and the eyes of the planet were on Windsor Castle, as well as all the surrounding shops, bars and cafes.

Whereas those shops in Windsor have since halved their price offerings of products and merchandise ‘Meghan and Harry‘, the guests at the royal wedding themselves are trying to get their fair share of the fame and fortune’s worth as a number of gift bags that were handed to them are now being sold online.

Websites such as eBay are offering the small gift bags that were handed to the 2,500 members of the British public whom were invited to the ground of Windsor castle to attend the ceremony for ridiculous prices.

The bids are currently going as high as $1,500, not bad for something you received for free of course.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding gift bag contained all things the British royalty thought the public would need during a day in the park, such as a booklet explaining the church service for the day and a tube of "handbag shortbread".

The items are being offered as: "Don't miss out on this limited once in a life time opportunity to have a piece of royal history."

It’s your chance in a lifetime to own: a bag bearing the initials "HM" as well as the date and venue for the wedding, an order of service booklet for the wedding, a tube of "handbag shortbread", a gold chocolate coin, a bottle of water, a fridge magnet and, lastly, a 20% off voucher for the Windsor Castle gift shop. All this can be yours if you outbid the others.
