Many businesses sent gifts to the “it couple” in hopes of getting publicity for their brands but had to face disappointment.

As per the royal gifting guidelines, the royal family had rejected the gifts worth $7 million, Daily Express reported.

Kensington Palace suggested that Harry and Meghan should send all of them back when they realized the motive of the donor is questionable and runs in counter to the gifting policy of the royal family.

The royal family made the following statement on behalf of Harry and Meghan before the wedding:

“Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle are incredibly grateful for the goodwill shown to them since the announcement of their engagement and are keen that as many people as possible benefit from this generosity of spirit. The couple have therefore asked that anyone who might wish to mark the occasion considers making a donation to charity, rather than sending a wedding gift.”

A promising solution to make everyone happy

After the haywire Prince Harry and Meghan Markel took a very rational decision and asked the well-wishers to donate to one of seven charitable causes close to their hearts, in lieu of gifts.

The royal family made the following statement on behalf of Harry and Meghan before the wedding:

“Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have personally selected seven organizations they would like to support, reflecting their shared values.

Prince Harry and Ms.Markle do not have any formal relationships with the charities chosen. The couple have chosen charities which represent a range of issues that they are passionate about, including sport for social change, women’s empowerment, conservation, the environment, homelessness, HIV, and the Armed Forces. Many of these are small charities, and the couple is pleased to be able to amplify and shine a light on their work.”

It looks like the royal couple succeeded in making everyone happy with their thoughtful decision.
