Princess Bea's hat thingy fetches big bucks



May 23, 2011 – As it turns out, Princess Beatrice isn’t the only one with an affinity for crazy, bow-dacious hats.

The now-infamous fascinator the young royal wore to the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton sold for a whopping 81,100.01 pounds (roughly $130,000 dollars) on EBay when her auction ended Sunday.

So, who plopped down the big bucks for the rightful ownership of the over-the-top Phillip Treacy creation?

Sadly, we may never know—unless the buyer wears it, of course—since the auction winner was an anonymous bidder.

The good news, however, is that the money raised from the 10-day auction will be donated to UNICEF UK and Children in Crisis through Beatrice’s Little Bee Initiative campaign.

Plus, we may never have to see that hat ever again. Whew.

What do you think: Did the buyer pay too much, or perhaps you bought it and wish to sound off in the comments? Let us know!
