Meghan Markle and Prince Harry couldn't make it to Idris Elba's wedding but they sure did make up for it with the gift...

On 26 April, Idris Elba got married to model and actress Sabrina Dhowre in Marrakesh at the Ksar Char-Bagh hotel. And on their guest list was Meghan Markle and Prince Harry but due to the forthcoming arrival of Baby Sussex, they could not attend. Elba actually went to their wedding in May last year, so it's clear they've got a firm friendship.

So, to make up for the absence of the royal couple, a rather sizeable (physically and monetarily) gift was given to the newlyweds. 

According to the Mail on Sunday, the royals selected a piece of art by duo the Connor Brothers to gift to the couple. The publication notes that the artwork retails for around Dhs28,500 (USD$9,000) with the chosen piece featuring the quote, "Why fit in when you were born to stand out?"
