ROYAL WEDDING PICS

Speaking before the eBay auction launched, Princess Beatrice said: “I’ve been amazed by the amount of attention the hat has attracted. It’s a wonderful opportunity to raise as much money as possible for two fantastic charities. I hope whoever wins the auction has as much fun with the hat as I have.”

And she can only have been more amazed by the tidy sum it fetched on eBay, the closing figure standing at £81,100.01.
