The Duke of York’s elder child, Princess Beatrice, has a weird taste as far as royal wedding attire is concerned. But in this case, as in any royal blood, weird is good as the Philip Treacy headpiece she wore for cousin Duke of Cambridge’s wedding (aka Prince William) earned quite an amount for charity. Described by fashion enthusiasts as a toilet seat, a cat flap, even a Turkey Twizzler, the “delicate tea rose silk” made hat earned a staggering £81,100($130,500) an online auction on eBay.
Princess Beatrice of York, 22, sold the unimpressive headgear to raise funds for Children in Crisis and Unicef. A spokeswoman for Children in Crisis went on to say, “We are absolutely delighted; it’s so exciting. Children in Crisis and Unicef are so happy that Princess Beatrice chose to benefit our two charities doing this fantastic auction.
