Guests invited by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to see them marry are already cashing in by selling their gift bags on eBay for £400 or more.

The canvas bags inscribed with the couple’s initials were given to the 1,200 non-VIPs invited to spend the day outside St George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle on Saturday.

Each one was packed with a giant chocolate coin, a tin of shortbread, a fridge magnet and a voucher for 20 per cent off in the castle shop to enjoy on the day.

A bottle of Windsor Castle water and a wedding programme were also included. 

But within hours of the royal wedding dozens of the so-called Community Champions started auctioning these free gifts off to the highest bidder.

Dozens of the so-called Community Champions started auctioning these free gifts off to the highest bidder.

Many had clearly planned to do it and photographed the items outside St George’s Chapel.    

MailOnline has found at least 25 listings ranging from between £25 and £420. 

One seller said: ‘Buy a piece of history and memorabilia to celebrate a momentous special day for Britain’s and the royal family’.

Another hoping to cash in on the international market said: ‘I’m happy to send the gift bag internationally if your happy to cover the postage’. 

One later claimed they would donate the cash to charity but had initially ‘forgotten’ to mention it on their eBay posting.

Today it also emerged that an eBay seller is auctioning off PDFs of the royal wedding order of service and incredibly more than ten people have bought them for a £5 each. 

This is despite the same thing being free to download via the royal family’s website. 

The seller wrote: ‘Wondered what was in the order of service? This is a PDF version of the exact order of service’.

‘It will be sent direct to your email address once payment is received for you to view or print off to make your own copy’.
