Princess Beatrice to auction off her Royal Wedding hat, social norms sold separately

Posted on

You know, a lot of people gave Princess Beatrice flack for the hat she wore to the Royal Wedding last month. Some called it “crazy”, while others claimed that if you go through its ring, you actually enter another dimension… of crazy.

Whatever your feelings were on the Philip Treacy creation, now is your opportunity to own it. Beatrice’s mum Sarah Ferguson visited The Oprah Winfrey Show, and in a segment featured in today’s episode, she told Winfrey the already-infamous hat would be placed on the head of the highest bidder on eBay. “She’s putting it up on eBay to auction it for UNICEF and for Children in Crisis,” the Duchess explained.

So, not only would you be giving to a good cause, but you’d have your go-to accessory for the entire summer! Wear it to the beach, to your own cousin’s wedding, or to the movies (hey, the people seated behind you could totally see through the hole, thank you very much!)

Tell us PopWatchers, would you buy Princess Beatrice’s Royal Wedding hat? If so, would you wear it?
