Flight of Fancy Princess Hats to Raise Money for Charity

So the wild and whimsical (which are nicer words than many have used) hats that the Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie wore for the recent royal wedding will have further life and do some good. Princess Beatrice has put her hat on auction for charity, and funds raised will go to UNICEF and Children in Crisis. Both fantastic charities are dedicated to kids in need around the world, and the eBay auction closes tomorrow. There has already been a bid for £75,000 (about $120,000), so you’ll want to get your bid in quickly! Knowing full well the hat has inspired endless jibes, Beatrice has taken it all in stride, with her eye on doing good. A more staid chapeau would never have gotten the attention or turned the charitiable bidding into such a frenzy. The princess was recently quoted, “It’s an incredible response to a hat, really. I’m glad it provoked so much conversation.”
