The event of the year just culminated with much fanfare and love from around the world. People from across the globe congratulated the Royal Couple- Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and even though the generous couple had announced that they would prefer donations to their chosen charities instead of any special gifts, they received love in the form of presents that are as thoughtful and bizarre as wedding gifts could get. 

The Kensington Palace had confirmed on Twitter last month that the couple did not have any official ties to the charities chosen by them; they only represented the issues that were close to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s heart.

The fact that the couple’s wedding broke traditions on many counts and that they defied all odds to be tied in holy matrimony makes us look at them with much love and respect. Celebrating their union, world leaders came forward to congratulate the couple with different kinds of gifts and we are about to tell you about those very gifts today.

1This is what the Queen gave to the couple

Queen Elizabeth gave a splendid gift to her grandson and his wife in the form of a hunting lodge in Sandringham Estate. The sprawling property is located about 110 miles northeast of the Kensington Palace (where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle currently live) and has been under the British Royal family’s possession since 1862.

It is unclear whether the couple will move into this property or not, but now they will have their private royal space, thanks to her Majesty.
