>> 2,200 pounds.>> Sold, nearly 20 years since her death, Britain's Princess Diana is still a hot commodity. A series of handwritten notes by the late royal were auctioned Thursday as part of a wider royal lot, raising around 55,000 pounds. Far more than estimates.>>
>> The notes were sent to Cyril Dickman who served as Chief Steward at Buckingham Palace for more than 50 years. Diana's sons William and Harry feature prominently in the letters, with one revealing that Prince Harry was constantly in trouble at school. All of the letters sold for more than forecast, almost ten times as much in some cases.
Other items sold by Dickman's family included photos, christmas cards and cakes from the queens wedding, all given by members of the royal family. Princes Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris in August 1997 a year after divorcing first in line to the throne, prince Charles.
