Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Gave Their Guests Goodie Bags at the Royal Wedding
Guests who attended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding Saturday are going home with a lifetime of memories and a gift bag filled with goodies.
According to Business Insider, the couple presented each guest inside St. George's Chapel with a monogrammed beige and blue tote that had Harry and Meghan's initials, the wedding date and location printed on the front.
Inside the bag were some essentials to help guests stay hydrated and nourished throughout the ceremony. Business Insider reports that the goodie bags carried a large gold chocolate coin embossed with Meghan and Harry's initials, commemorative shortbread, a fridge magnet, a bottle of water, and a voucher for 20 percent off the Middle Ward gift shop in Windsor.
Members of the media gave followers a closer look at the goodie bags on social media, including royal photographers Mark Cuthbert and James Whatling, who shared photos.
"A lovely touch for the guests in the Castle for today's #RoyalWedding, complete with water and a huge Harry and Meghan chocolate coin," Whatling wrote.
Some of the guests who received the souvenir totes were the 2,500 members of the public who were invited to attend. Those selected reportedly included young people who showed strong leadership and served their communities.
"They want their wedding day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations too,” Kensington Palace said in a press release in March. “This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the characters and values of the bride and groom.”
