As the world binge-watches The Crown*—*and counts down to the royal behemoth’s final six episodes, due to land on Netflix on December 14—the streaming giant has yet another treat up its sleeve for fans: the news that as the show comes to its epic conclusion, a whopping 450 meticulously-designed costumes and props are set to go under the hammer.
On 19 November, it was announced that Bonhams would be hosting a once-in-a-lifetime auction featuring items from all six seasons of the awards-laden drama. On offer? A replica of Princess Diana’s unforgettable revenge dress, as worn by Elizabeth Debicki, and priced between £8,000 and £12,000 (or $10,000 and $15,000); her leopard-print swimsuit and Versace sunglasses, as seen in the first episode of series six; her jaw-dropping engagement ring; Queen Elizabeth II’s stunning Coronation robes, as sported by Claire Foy; and even the world’s only reproduction of the Queen’s elaborately gilded Coronation carriage, which could set you back up to £50,000, or $62,000. There are also pieces that have been worn by Vanessa Kirby’s Princess Margaret (the satin and tulle ball gown she donned in season two, when posing for Cecil Beaton), and Lia Williams’s Wallis Simpson (the column gown she wears in season one, when being photographed with the Duke of Windsor).
