INDUSTRY.co.id - England - By the time of the wedding day, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle already have a simple request regarding the wedding gifts they will receive from the guests. Both asked for nobody to give and send wedding gifts.

If anyone has sent, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will send the wedding gift to several charities they have chosen, ie to institutions in the field of women's empowerment, environmental conservation, homelessness, HIV and the armed forces.

However, there are still some parties who send their wedding gifts to the palace.

Excerpted from Express.com, the prizes were even worth USD9, 3 million or about Rp128, 6 trillion. These gifts are widely accepted from both individuals and business corporations.

However, the nobles can not accept gifts from corporations or individuals, as this is considered contrary to the protocols of the kingdom.

If a prize is accepted, then the Royal Family may only use the gift for his personal benefit. There should be no commercial gain for the gift giver.

This rule, aimed at protecting the royal family members from the threats that may be present in the prize. Therefore, there is no guarantee of the gift giver's motive to always be good.
