[United Kingdom] The hat that will help save the world

As she arrived to Westminster Abbey, her hat came as a surprise to her family and to the rest of the world. William and Catherine have been married for more than half a month, but "that" hat is still buzzing. Princess Beatrice, the proud owner of it, had the idea of making an auction out of it. Half the proceeds will go to UNICEF. The other half will go to Children in Crisis. Truth is that one week away from the end of the eBay auction, there have been 42 bids, reaching the astounding amount of 10,900£ ($17,650.00). We will keep you posted next week on the final amount. The future owner will have the hat - a Philip Treacy creation - shipped directly from Buckingham Palace. To know more about Princess Beatrice's Little Bee Initiative, click here.
