2-4-1 princess sale lands Fergie in more hot water

Cash-strapped Sarah Ferguson is even more red-faced today after fresh claims of money-grabbing emerged – this time involving the sale of her two daughters on Ebay.

Last week the former princess was recorded offering an undercover journalist access to her ex-husband Prince Andrew for £500,000. While the revelation has been embarrassing, it pales in comparison to the latest discovery.

Yesterday, an eagle-eyed Gusset reporter discovered Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie listed on popular shopping site Ebay with a reserve of £350 for the pair. Investigations revealed that the seller, whose username was Chubbsy1959, had also listed a number of royal items including a pair of Princess Diana’s jodhpurs and hair allegedly from Queen Elizabeth’s plughole.

The double sister sale, which began “Two royal princesses for the price of one!!!!1” went on to describe Princess Beatrice, 22, and Eugenie, 21, as “buxom and plyant (sic)” and from a pet and smoke free home.

The princesses in happier times.

Ebay pulled the listings this morning after being alerted by our reporter. An Ebay spokesperson has confirmed that as the sisters are over 18 they may not be sold by a third party.

Human rights organisation Amnesty International has warned against selling royals on online shopping sites after Prince Frederick of Denmark was sold on a Danish shopping site to African slave merchants in 2002.

The organisation has urged Ebay to include a clause that prevents the sale of anyone linked to the monarchy.

The princesses were unavailable for comment this morning.


  1. oh my gosh is this for real? What was she trying to sell them for? Were the princesses aware?

  2. It's real all right. Luckily a reporter discovered this, otherwise yet more Royals could have been sold as though little more than cattle. People think that just because they're 'Royal' that they have an easy life, when the reality is they're more often the victims of some of the worst human rights abuses in the free world.

    It's all just very, very sad.

  3. Yea, it is sad. Funny that you should liken royalty to cattle as there used to be a ritual known as "royal-chopping" (known as Royping in many circles). This was a practice from the 1800s that involved chopping the left leg off from the hip of a randomly selected monarch. They would then stone bake this leg for exactly 7.1/4 minutes before handing chunks of the flesh to people who looked insulting at the time.
    Great measures were taken to keep this practice secret, it was said that George IV payed £25000 to keep a calf's leg in place of the amputated limb yet no one dared to question the smell. Why he payed that some of money is unknown.

    This is where the term "stunk-like-a-crippled-royal" comes from and is believed to be the inspiration for the crip gang name.......
