Princess Beatrice to auction off Royal Wedding fascinator on eBay

Loved the fascinator that Princess Beatrice wore to the Royal Wedding? Now it can be yours – for the right price.

“She’s putting it up on eBay to auction it for UNICEF and for children in crisis,” Beatrice’s mother, Duchess Sarah Ferguson, announced Wednesday during an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

For the April 29 wedding of her cousin Prince William to Duchess Catherine, Beatrice, 22, chose to top off her outfit with a blush-colored topper made by renowned London milliner Philip Treacy. The hat was so unusual that it instantly grabbed headlines, became an Internet sensation and became the focus on several Facebook fan pages.

Treacy, whose creations can cost around $3,300, told U.K.’s Daily Mail he designed the hat without any royal input. (Treacy also designed the electric blue hat Princess Eugenie wore to the wedding.)

“No, they didn’t tell me [what they wanted] because I’ve known them for a long time,” he said, “and I wanted them to look gorgeous and beautiful.”.
