Princess Diana’s Virgin Atlantic Sweater Sells for More Than $50,000

A navy blue cotton-polyester sweatshirt that Princess Diana wore often to the gym was recently auctioned off for $53,532 to a mysterious bidder from California, according to The Daily Mail.

RR Auctions presided over the sale.

The sweatshirt was offered up by the princess’ longtime personal trainer, Jenni Rivett, who received it from the princess herself, among other items. The sweatshirt was originally worn by Princess Di to confound paparazzi who were trying to profit off pictures. Because she wore the same thing often, Diana hoped they would be harder for the photographers to sell.

The sweatshirt features the old Virgin Airlines flying lady logo and was a gift to Diana from Virgin Airlines founder Richard Branson, a personal friend.
