Late British royal DIANA, Princess Of Wales' ballet shoes are up for auction on website eBay.

The tragic princess was an avid ballerina in her teen years before she grew too tall to dance professionally.

The ballet shoes she wore during the 1970s when she lived at English country home Althorp were sold during a private sale several years ago and are now up on with a starting price of $8,000 (GBP4,440).

The seller writes, "The slippers were used by Diana to practice ballet at Althorp back in 1979. They have been preserved in a glad case and they come with absolute proof of them being Diana Spencer's, signed by her inside both the slippers."
