An update on that hat Princess Beatrice wore to the royal wedding - it's sold for a whopping £81,100.01!

Even though lots of people didn't like it - some saying it looked like a toilet seat or a cat flap - the hat was popular with bidders on the internet.

The money raised will be split between two children's charities - Unicef and Children in Crisis.

Beatrice said, "I cannot believe the amazing response to the hat. It has its own personality..."

The princess also said: "I am so happy that we have raised the most incredible amount of money and can make an even bigger change in the lives of some of the most vulnerable children across the world."

It's not yet been revealed who the winning bidder is.
