Princess Beatrice Sells Royal Wedding Hat On eBay For More Than $131K

The infamous hat that quieted the Rebecca Black meme.

We remember being shocked when the charity eBay auction for Princess Beatrice’s Royal Wedding hat reached $10,000—and now, the bidding closed yesterday at a whopping $131,648 (£81,100).  The 22-year-old princess said she was happy to give the entirety of the proceeds from her Philip Treacy creation to UNICEF and Children in Crisis: “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,” she said in a statement.

Upset you didn’t get the money together in time for your bid? Well you’re in luck. There are plenty of Princess Beatrice Hat replicas already up for sale on eBay—early bird Halloween costume, anyone? Shop Princess Beatrice Royal Wedding Hat Replicas Here Now.
