The quirky Philip Treacy ‘pretzel’ hat that Princess Beatrice wore to the royal wedding last month has reached over $130,000 in bids on auction site eBay.com.
Princess Beatrice, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, caused a stir with the outrageous headpiece at her cousin Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton on April 29th.
“I’ve been amazed by the amount of attention the hat has attracted. It’s a wonderful opportunity to raise as much money as possible for two fantastic charities. I hope whoever wins the auction has as much fun with the hat as I have,” she says in the item’s description.
The sale ends today and proceeds will benefit Unicef UK and Children in Crisis via the Little Bee Initiative.
