Sometimes when you hear "no gifts please," you kind of assume that comes with a wink, but not when it comes to the Royals. Just like Property Brothers Drew Scott and fiance Linda Phan, no the mention the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan and Prince Harry are requesting that guests and well-wishers make a donation to one of seven charities rather than send them presents. Phew, that relieves a lot of stress for me personally, as I was freaking out, what do you get the couple that literally has it all? A nice set of bath towels?

Kensington Palace released a statement saying: 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."

The couple hand-selected the charities, which are listed below and you can find out more about them on the Kensington Palace site or by clicking the links below!

The charities the couple selected are:
CHIVA (Children's HIV Association)
Myna Mahila Foundation
Scotty's Little Soldiers
Street Games
Surfers Against Sewage
The Wilderness Foundation of the UK
