Kate Middleton's dress sells for $125,884 at auction
While a student at Scotland's University of St. Andrews in 2002, wearing a transparent slip of a dress for a charity fashion show, Kate Middleton turned heads -- in particular catching the eye of fellow student Prince William, who years later would become her fiance.
Now, the dress that may have fetched the young lady a prince has itself fetched $125,884 at auction.
"Everyone says that the fashion show was when the romance started and when she bagged her prince, so a small part of me will always be part of royal history. It's madness!" Todd told People.
An anonymous bidder scored the look, right; other items up for sale included intimates from the closet of Wallis Simpson, duchess of Windsor, and Princess Diana, William's late mother.
At roughly the same time last year, the same auction house nabbed $276,621 for an evening gown that had belonged to Di.
