Royal Wedding watchers compared the flamboyant Philip Treacy creation to a Turkey Twizzler, a toilet seat and a pretzel, and Facebook pages sprung up in its honour, attracting thousands of followers.

Undeterred, the 22-year-old princess decided to sell off the item for charity, with Unicef and Children in Crisis to benefit from the funds raised.

She wrote on the auction page: "I hope whoever wins the auction has as much fun with the hat as I have."
