Princess Beatrice to put her bizarre Royal Wedding hat up for auction on eBay
Princess Beatrice is putting her bizarre Royal Wedding hat on eBay.
As soon as Prince William's cousin appeared at Westminster Abbey wearing the Philip Treacy creation, shocked bloggers and Tweeters worldwide swamped the Internet with caustic remarks.
Facebook users even created a group named Beatrice's Ridiculous Royal Wedding Hat.
'Its crazy British royal at its best! Viva "El Toilet Seat!"',' joked one of the 136,000 users, while another wrote: 'Damn thing looks like a mini toilet seat with ribbons.'
Nevertheless, 22-year-old Beatrice is said to have smiled at the jibes and will be auctioning the hat to raise money for Unicef and Children In Crisis, which is her mother the Duchess Of York's charity.
'She's a lovely girl and really does have a sense of humour,' a royal source tells the Daily Mail.
'She knows the world had a bit of a laugh at her but this is hopefully a way of turning the attention into something positive.'
