This past weekend, one of Lady Di's many cars, an Audi 2.3E, sold at auction for almost $60,000 to a UK-based bidder, after attracting worldwide interest.

"The Audi only had 21,000 miles on the clock and was as good as new," Coys' auction manager Nick Wiles said in a statement." On a fine day the owner might go for a drive in it, but it is basically a collector's item."

On Princess Diana's Birthday, Everything She Touched is Still Gold

2 July 2013

Princess Diana would have turned 52 yesterday. In her short life, she left behind a legacy of aspiration, taste, and philanthropy. But in tangible terms, she passed on a wealth of possessions. In the years since her tragic death in 1997, everything she touched became a relic of her reign as the People's Princess. From the blue sapphire ring Prince William passed from his mother to his bride to the iconic dresses that serve as artifacts on display around the world, Diana's belongings hold tremendous value for her family, friends, and for collectors. To this day, her possessions are still coveted as important pieces of history, selling for record prices to the highest bidder. Here's a look at Lady Di's recent items up for auction, or on display. They serve as testament to the undying interest in a life cut short. — Piper Weiss, Shine Staff
