You might have heard that Princess Beatrice has put her royal wedding hat on eBay in order to make money for the Little Bee Initiative, a charitable organisation set up by the princess to raise money for Children in Crisis and Unicef.

So this is a Philip Treacy creation that was present at THE royal wedding, we get that. And it is in aid of charity. But would you really bid on the bizarre octopus-like headwear?

If your name is Duncan Bannatyne you would. Dragon and businessman Bannatyne offered £5,000 within minutes of the listing going live. OK, so he’s got a lot of cash to part with and probably wouldn’t miss it that much.

An Australian children’s group called The Wiggles has also bid on the headwear which until now has reached £18,000.

We want to know who’s placed the latest bid!! And there are four more days left for anyone wanting to get a one of a kind royal wedding keepsake.
