Princess Beatrice’s Hat Sells For Over £80,000!

While Princess Beatrice was gallivanting at a polo cup in Sussex, her much-talked-about Philip Treacy fascinator ended its auction on eBay and sold for a whopping £81,100.01 (yep, the 1p made all the difference)! We had bets the love-it-or-hate-it hat would reach £30k tops! At this price the mystery bidder could have bought at least 6 Philip Treacy fascinators (plus one for each of the guests and paid for a wedding)!

But it’s not to be scoffed at, all the money raised is being donated by Princess Beatrice to UNICEF. The Princess was looking slimmer than ever in a blue belted dress at the polo event in west Sussex. We think the gravity-defying fascinator would topple her over if she wore it now! We hope the lucky winner is happy with her (or his?) new hat – imagine if it turned up at your next wedding party!
