Princess Beatrice's ring-and-bow-shaped hat she wore to the royal wedding has garnered bids reaching $30,000 on eBay, the online auctioneer announced Wednesday.

The gravity-defying hat created by Philip Treacy turned heads at Prince William's wedding in April.

Funds from the hat's sale will go to UNICEF and Children in Crisis, according to eBay. Beatrice said she hoped whoever bought the hat would have "as much fun with it as I have."

The auction ends May 22.
