As reported earlier on BFF.TV, Princess Beatrice was putting her iconic Royal Wedding hat up on Ebay to raise money for charity. The much talked about Philip Treacy hat pulled in $130,000 from an anonymous buyer! Wow. The fact that it was worn by a member of the Royal family during the Royal wedding definitely makes its’ retail value a little bit higher but that is still a lot of money to dish out on a hat!
Princess Beatrice is donating the money to UNICEF and Children in Crisis, a charity established by her mother. After the sale, Princess Beatrice commented, “It has its own personality, and I am so happy that we have raised the most incredible amount of money and can make an even bigger change for the lives of some of the most vulnerable children across the world.”
Congratulations to the lucky buyer! We’re sure that hat will be remembered for years to come.
