Kate Middleton Hats Fetch Big Bucks at Auction
Two hats worn by Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton before her marriage to Britain’s Prince William were recently sold at auction for fairly big bucks.
One, which she wore to a wedding in October 2010, went for the equivalent of $5,080 and the other for $5,030. Not a small amount for an accessory.
Interestingly, both of the hats were rented … who rents hats? Apparently if you’re the UK’s most fashionable young woman, it’s par for the course.
Given that Prince Charles reportedly picks up the tab for all work-related Kate Middleton wardrobe costs, she can afford to rent the best of the best, too.
The two hats were part of the ‘Passion for Fashion’ auction held by Kerry Taylor, the same auction house which sold a dress of hers for £78,000 last year.
Now that she’s married to William, auction houses are unable to put any items of the Duchess’ clothes up for sale unless she sanctions a charity auction.
