Prince Harry and Meghan Markle return $12 million in wedding gifts

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, are returning over $13 million worth of wedding gifts.

The Duchess of Sussex's two-minute poetry reading to the 200 guests at Windsor's Frogmore Hall was yet another example of the way she and Harry abandoned stuffy royal protocol to make their wedding a thoroughly modern, inclusive celebration.

The minimalist gown featured a boat neck and three-quarter-length sleeves, and was made from double-bonded silk cady matched with a triple-silk organza skirt.

The picture shows Prince Harry, 33, standing next to wife Meghan, 36, who is resting her hand on his chest.

Markle has abided by that rule since her first public walkabout with Prince Harry, in Nottingham in December, when the couple told fans: "We're not allowed to do selfies". TMZ reported the royal couple is eyeing the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Alberta as their honeymoon spot and would stay in the 6,000 square foot Outlook Cabin, also known as "the royal retreat". A total of 13.6 million on BBC One plus 4 million on ITV watched William marry Kate Middleton. Not only this, but Meghan part-walked herself down to aisle due to her father being absent through illness.

Marrying Prince Harry, Meghan has joined arguably the world's most privileged family and will never have to worry about money again. French President Emmanuel Macron, however, went rogue and gifted the couple with a James Bond-themed cigar cutter set. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also revealed that Canada will donate £29,000 (NZ$55,000) to the youth charity named Jumpstart.

A source told the newspaper: "Harry and Meghan have a window free and Gabriel and his wife have invited them to their attractive Queenslander-style house".

Harry and Meghan will be in Australia later this year. In India, a local Peta charity said that an adopted injured bull would be called Merry, a fusion of both of their names. She said in an interview with The Sun on May 22 that she hopes Markle can somehow reunite the divorced family.

However, if they arrive once Prince Charles has ascended the throne, they could become a Prince or Princess because their grandfather is the king.
