Identity of Kate's see-through dress buyer revealed
The identity of the buyer of Kate Middleton's see-through dress has been revealed.
Nicky Roberts of New Jersey paid 78,000 pounds (C$125,000) to own the lacy sack that cost 50 pounds (C$75) to make, reports the BBC.
Middleton wore the dress in 2002 during a fashion show at St. Andrew's University that Prince William attended, before the two started dating.
Roberts is the nephew of collector David Gainsborough-Roberts, who had no idea his relative was bidding for the dress.
So what will happen to the fabric that once barely covered Kate? Well, it's heading back to the auction block.
"We are going to put it in the British Antique Dealers Association fair next week in London at the Duke of York barracks," Gainsborough-Roberts told the BBC.
"We are going to do it to raise money for charity," he said.
"Miss Middleton is probably going to be the next Queen of England," Gainsborough-Roberts added. "Therefore it is of historical importance - probably more important than Queen Victoria's bloomers - which I have in my collection."
