Love it or hate it, the funky hat that Princess Beatrice wore to the Royal Wedding is proving to be worth a bundle on eBay.

Beatrice, 22, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, put the hat up for auction for charity – and the current bid on the Philip Treacy oddity is now 20,200, or more than $30,000.

“I’ve been amazed by the amount of attention the hat has attracted,” Beatrice writes on the eBay listing. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to raise as much money as possible for two fantastic charities. I hope whoever wins the auction has as much fun with the hat as I have.”

Proceeds from the sale will benefit UNICEF and Children in Crisis. If you’ve been slow to bid, don’t panic. Bidding ends Sunday at noon ET.
