Auction of items linked to late Princess Diana winding down


BOSTON (AP) Online bidding was winding down for dozens of items with direct connections to Britain’s late Princess Diana.

Eighty items being sold at auction 20 years after her death in a Paris car crash included articles of clothing, jewelry, signed papers, and photographs. There was even a piece of her wedding cake still stored in a commemorative box.

Boston-based RR Auction handled the sale, which was to end Wednesday, Sept. 13.

Auction house executive vice president Bobby Livingston said interest in Diana memorabilia remains high because “she still resonates all over the world.” He said the items “give you a little snapshot into this beautiful woman’s life.”

The items include belongings Diana donated to charity months before her death on Aug. 31, 1997.
