The qxl display and vdagent running in guest do just this.
Unfortunately, the options needed in qemu command line to make vdagent
work with the spice client do not seem to be documented anywhere.

No copy/paste with VNC display with Windows guest
Status in QEMU:
There is no copy/paste functionality between a Windows guest and the
VNC client. This is a significant usability problem.
One work-around is to run VNC inside of the guest. But that appears
to have more overhead than qemu's VNC display.
Obviously, qemu's VNC display is just a display device and knows
absolutely nothing about the Windows clipboard. Thus, to interface
with the guest's clipboard would require a helper app running in the
guest that can hook into qemu. This would probably be the best
There are probably not a lot of qemu developers interested in trying
to write the helper app. Not exactly an interesting job. But since
it is a significant usability problem, and many users would see this
as a major oversight, I suggest leaving this bug open long-term as a
hint so that some volunteer later looking for something to do might
take pity on everyone and write this helper app.
