The hat worn by Princess Beatrice at Prince William and Kate's royal wedding ceremony on April 29, 2011 has sold on eBay for $131,341. Incredible! Proceeds of the famous Philip Treacy "unique sculptural celebratory headpiece" will go to two children's charities. Princess Beatrice is said to be very surprised by all the attention the hat received, and goes on to describe how happy she is that the money raised is going to help "some of the most vulnerable children across the world."
