You Can Actually Buy Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Wedding Trumpet on eBay

Today in news that’s a touch absurd: The wedding trumpet used at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Windsor Castle wedding is officially on sale. 

Quick refresher just in case you forgot: It was May 19. Meghan Markle was dressed in Givenchy and was escorted down the aisle at St. George’s Chapel by Prince Charles. In the distance, the sound of a trumpet could be heard playing Handel’s Eternal Source of Light Divine as Meghan made her way to Prince Harry, who immediately mouthed: “I'm so lucky.” (Le sigh.)

Welp, now that trumpet—owned by acclaimed musician David Blackadder—has a price tag on eBay. It’s listed at 5,000 pounds (approximately $6,500) to start. So far, just two bids have been placed.

Also included is a note from David himself about what makes the instrument so special. “This is a once in a lifetime chance to own a true piece of royal history.” He also reminds potential bidders that an estimated live audience of 1.9 billion people heard him play. (Not too shabby.)

We should add that, in addition to the trumpet, David is throwing in a copy of the wedding program (called an “Order of Service”), too. 

Still, are those two items worth all that cash? Royal time will tell. (The auction officially closes on April 30, so there are just six days to go.)
