A Boden hat tried on by the Duchess of Cambridge is being auctioned for charity.

East Anglia's Children's Hospices is selling the new navy hat, which has a caramel coloured ribbon detail, on eBay.

The fashionable piece of headwear was modelled by the charity's royal patron when she shared a joke with staff at the opening of its Holt chaity shop last March.

To celebrate the first anniversary of the opening, EACH has listed the Boden hat on eBay with all proceeds benefiting the charity.

The auction will run from Thursday, March 25 until 9.05pm on Sunday, April 2.

Ian Nicolson, head of retail, said: 'We have had a fantastic first year of trading in the town. The support of the Holt community has been incredible and we would like to say a big thank you to all our volunteers and customers.

'I can't wait to see how much the hat sells for or whether the winning bidder lives in the UK or further afield.'
