Fierce bidding war

At Sotheby's Fashion Icon auction, the renowned red and white sweater sparked a 15-minute bidding war that resulted in 44 bids, raising the price from N142m to N863m.

According to TMZ, Princess Diana first wore the sweater back in 1981, and it gained instant popularity when she was pictured in it on the front page of a newspaper.

This moment catapulted the British brand Warm & Wonderful, the designers behind the garment, to unparalleled popularity.

The iconic sheep sweater remained tucked away in the brand's archives for decades until its rediscovery this March by co-founder Joanna Osborne.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle share heartbroken message

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle penned a heartfelt statement lamenting the current global state of affairs.

The couple said they were "speechless" as they noted the situation in Afghanistan and the earthquake that has rocked Haiti.

“The planet is, undoubtedly, fragile right now. As we all feel the many layers of pain due to the crises in Afghanistan, we are left without words," an extract from their website read.

Meghan's dad slams Prince Harry also reported that Thomas Markle accused Prince Harry of not asking for his daughter's hand in marriage.

The 77-year-old was speaking during a tell-all interview with GB News.

Markle apparently blames Prince Harry for his rocky relationship with his daughter, despite being caught colluding with paparazzi to stage pictures before the couple's wedding in 2018.
