A royal wedding gift should be of high value. The New Zealand prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, revealed that the wedding gift we’ll give to the royal couple was a donation of $5000 to their charity, Pillars. For a gift given on behalf of a whole country, the value of $5000 doesn’t qualify as a high enough wedding gift to a couple of such prestige. Also as the gift is going towards a wonderful cause, a charity which supports the families of those in prisons, it will have a positive response from our society. New Zealand’s wedding gift to Prince William and Kate Middleton consisted of double the amount of money being given to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Evidently the difference in the amounts of money being given supports the statement that the wedding gift should be of higher value. The gifts should be raised to a more acceptable value to compensate for our countries connection to the royal family and to offer New Zealand’s help to a charity which aids our international community.
