If you are fabulously wealthy, or maybe just wealthy, and have always wanted a big decorative circle on your head for children to throw grapes through at tedious brunch parties, Princess Beatrice’s royal wedding hat may be for you! The very same one that was affixed to her very scalp the day Kate Middleton became the Duchess of Cambridge will be auctioned on eBay to benefit UNICEF, her mom Sarah Ferguson said today on The Oprah Winfrey Show. One of her hat’s Facebook fan pages has more than 136,000 likes as this post goes live, so the bidding could get serious. “How a hat makes you feel is what a hat is all about,” the hat’s designer Philip has said. “The head is the most important part of the body to embellish, because it’s what you meet.” Really, you’re doing all your new acquaintances a disservice by not letting them meet you crazy hat to face.
