(Newser) – The rapture didn't happen Saturday, but humanity might be doomed anyway: That thing, er, "unique sculptural celebratory headpiece," that Princess Beatrice wore to the royal wedding sold on eBay for nearly $131,000 yesterday. Sadly, the winning bidder currently remains anonymous, E! reports. On the bright side, the AP notes, proceeds go to UNICEF and Children in Crisis. Get yourself a knockoff for about 10 bucks here.
