Beatrice hat makes £81,000

Princess Beatrice's Royal Wedding hat has sold for just over £81,000 on eBay.

Online bidding has finally ended for the Philip Treacy creation which has been likened to a pretzel, a toilet seat, a cat flap and a Turkey Twizzler. The unique headpiece was made of "delicate tea rose silk"

All the money raised will go to Unicef and Children In Crisis via the Little Bee Initiative, which was set up by Beatrice specifically for the auction.

Beatrice commented on the site: "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."
