Princess Beatrice fascinator

The MOST fascinating of Royal Wedding fascinators will soon be up for auction on eBay.

And it could be yours (if I don’t outbid you). During her appearance on Oprah this week, Sarah Ferguson announced that her daughter, Princess Beatrice, will be auctioning off her Philip Treacy fascinator on eBay and the proceeds will go to UNICEF.

For the record, we think Princess Beatrice’s fascinator is absolutely fabulous and was totally appropriate for the occasion, since the style recalls the garters used in heraldic emblems, like the United Kingdom Royal Coat of Arms, and in symbols of royal orders, like the Lesser George symbol of the Order of the Garter, seen below. The one of the right is the one Queen Victoria wore on her sash. We do love our royal symbols here at Empirella.

We’ll let you know when the bidding starts!

Lady Victoria's Lesse George
