Lucky members of the public who were invited to the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at the weekend were sent home with a goodie bag to mark the historic event they attended.

However, just a matter of days later, some of those gift bags have already ended up being auctioned online.

The bags, which were given to those invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle, reportedly featured an order of service, a large chocolate coin with the couple's initials embossed, shortbread, a fridge magnet, bottle of water, and a voucher for 20 percent off the Middle Ward gift shop in Windsor. The blue and beige tote bags were also monogrammed with the couple's initials.

So far, a number have been spotted on eBay. One bag, which the seller advertises as buying "a piece of history and memorabilia to celebrate a momentous special day for Britain and the royal family," has winning bid of £200 (P14,042.05) while another is going for £215 (P15,095.20).

However, while people might assume all sellers are looking for some extra cash for themselves, at least two of the sellers have noted that all proceeds of the sale will be going to charityand these are the people currently seeing pretty hefty bids for their memorabilia. One bag, with 42 bids, is currently being auctioned at a whopping £1,020 (P71,614.46) while anotherwhose proceeds are also going to charityis spiking at a bid of £510 (P35,807.23).

A goodie bag wasn't all the guests got, however. The 600 people invited to the lunchtime reception feasted on canapés including Scottish langoustines wrapped in smoked salmon, tomato and basil tartare with balsamic pearls, and warm asparagus spears with mozzarella and tomatoes before eating trendy bowl food of slow-roasted pork belly and pea and mint risotto. We're hungry just thinking about it.
