  • Print


   Princess Beatrice’s famous royal wedding hat has sold for $130,000 on eBay. The hat, which designer Philip Treacy described as a "sculptured ribbon pillbox, in blush,” became the object of much Photoshop fun after it caught viewers’ eyes at the Royal Wedding.





   Beatrice, the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, is donating the money to UNICEF and Children in Crisis. “I hope the winner of the auction has as much fun with the hat as I have,” she said.
