I guess Beatrice is to be commended for using the ridicule she received to promote a charitable cause but you have to question the sanity of some of the bidders.

The questions are amusing:

A: The Hat has been worn once (for the Royal Wedding) and does not have any marks on it.

Q: What is the size of the hat and how much does it weigh?

It looks like the ridiculous bids were not genuine and the auction has restarted.
