Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding gift list has just had another item added to it – a one-off Mini designed to commemorate their royal wedding on May 19.

After the big day, the perky little car, resplendent in the white, red and blue of the UK and US flags, will be donated to the Children's HIV Association charity for a fund-raising auction.

The car's rear lights run with that colour scheme, designed to directly resemble the Union Jack, as do the wheels.

The car will be auctioned for charity after the wedding. Mini

Unique details include the initials "M" and "H" with a heart and rings next to the side indicators.

The first names of the bride and groom, plus the wedding date, are inscribed on a strip ahead of the front passenger seat.

When the car is opened, “Just Married” is projected onto the ground next to both doors.

Sadly, the wedding tradition of cans on string tied to the rear of the car doesn't seem to be included, however.
