Princess Beatrice's Whimsical Topper Fetches $130K on eBay Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice
Last week, we were shocked with reports that Princess Beatrice's royal wedding hat was up to $30,000 on eBay. But call us officially floored with its final sales price—a whopping $130,700!

The unique topper by Philip Treacy received rather unfavorable critical reaction, launched its own Facebook fan page and even inspired a meme. But clearly it has its legitimate fans—legitimate fans with a lot of money! Even Princess Beatrice is amazed with the attention her topper has gotten. She 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 the winner of the auction has as much fun with the hat as I have.
We don't know who the final bidder ended up being, but we do know all the proceeds of the sale will go to UNICEF and Children in Crisis.
