Princess Diana's Wedding Dress Auctioned For $2 Million
Fragments of late British royal DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES' wedding dress are being sold on internet auction house eBAY - for a staggering $2 million (GBP1 million).
The seller GAVIN YOUNG claims he was given the fabric pieces from his parents, who received the gown from London dress designers ELIZABETH and DAVID EMMANUEL following Diana's 1981 wedding to PRINCE CHARLES, as a thank you gift, because their daughter KERRY had been their children's au pair for nine months.
Young has placed the five scraps of silk and lace in the higher-priced property section, but insists the remarkable price tag is negotiable.
He says, "They are possibly the most exclusive and undoubtedly unique piece of royal memorabilia ever to come out of England.
"Obviously, if the price is right, I'd be a fool not to sell. It depends who wants it."03/06/2005 02:56
