The fanfare surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding, which took place last May, is still alive and well. Between royal wedding dress exhibits and venue tours, the duo has made it easy for their fanbase to experience their big day post-nuptials. It just got even easier: You can now officially own a major keepsake from the royal wedding. According to HELLO!, David Blackadder, the trumpeter who performed while Markle entered St. George's Chapel, is officially selling the instrument he used during the ceremony on eBay, along with an order of service from the event.

Owning Blackadder's trumpet, however, will cost you-the bidding starts at £5,000, which is close to $6,500 (and the amount will only go up from there!). The musician isn't taking his decision to sell his royal wedding keepsake lightly, noting that it's "a once in a lifetime chance to own a true piece of royal history."

As for the reason why Blackadder is parting with this rare piece of history? He claims he purchased a new trumpet. The publication's source added that he "wanted somebody else to enjoy playing it, or perhaps even put it in a museum." As of right now, the auction ends on April 30th, so you'll have to act quickly if you're interested in making this royal wedding memento your own.

Though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding continues to make headlines, we're most excited about their next phase of life: Parenthood. The Duchess of Sussex is due any day now-we have a feeling that the newest member of the royal family will arrive by the end of the week since Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, has officially arrived in London for the birth, reports Entertainment Tonight.
