When we heard that Princess Diana’s dresses were going up for auction again, we knew they’d go for a pretty penny.
And they DID!
All ten of the dresses auctioned off at Kerry Taylor Auctions on Tuesday raked in a whopping $1,209,120.
The best seller in the lot was the Victor Edelstein gown Princess Di wore when she danced with John Travolta at the White House, which fetched $362,736.
No word if Prince William bought one as a surprise for Kate Middleton, but if not, no worries. She'll always have that fabulous sapphire and diamond ring!

An extraordinary collection of Princess Diana's dresses can be yours, that is if you can afford it.
The 14 dresses belong to Maureen Rorech Dunkel, who purchased them at an auction just weeks before Di's fatal car crash in Paris. Now 14 years, a default loan payment and a bankruptcy filing later Dunkel's decided to sell them.
Some of the more famous pieces up for grabs include a blue Victor Edelstein velvet dress worn while dancing with John Travolta at the White House and two Catherine Walker dresses Diana posed in for a Vanity Fair spread.
The Waddington Auction House expects each dress to fetch between $175,000 to $550,000, but we wouldn't be surprised if certain ones go for more.
