Princess Beatrice’s Hat is For Auction

Popular Australian children’s entertainers, ‘The Wiggles’ is one of the bidders for the flamboyant hat worn by Princess Beatrice at the royal wedding.

The quartet want to bring the headwear ‘Down Under’, and joked that they may give it to cricketer Ricky Ponting to wear when he plays bats against England.

They wear some pretty crazy costumes on stage but this hat beats them all, blue Wiggle Anthony Field says.

If they win, might give it to Ricky Ponting to wear when he bats against the Poms (England) next time.

It would certainly distract the bowler, he adds.

The princess, the oldest daughter of Prince Andrew and a granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, has put the Philip Treacy creation on online auction site eBay, with bidding currently at £18,400 (about $30,000).

The proceeds of the sale will be divided among the two charities: the United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF, and British charity Children in Crisis.
