This Red Sweater is Worth Rs 9.13 Cr, Know Who Owned it & Its History

A red sweater worn by the late Princess Diana was sold for a whopping sum of more than 1.1 million dollars (Rs 9.13 crore) at an auction in Sotheby’s, New York.

This sweater has a black sheep among rows of white ones. The sweater’s design is often described as symbolic of Diana’s place within the royal family.

According to Sotheby’s, Diana wore the sweater in 1981 while attending a polo match of Prince Charles.

In 1981, Buckingham Palace had requested its maker ‘Warm and Wonderful’, a British luxury knitwear brand to either repair or replace it as had been damaged.

Warm and Wonderful sent Princess Diana a replacement sweater that she wore in 1983 to another polo match.

Bidding for the sweater started on August 31 and Sotheby’s had estimated that it would be sold at 50,000 to 80,000 dollars.

But at the last moment an unidentified bidder offered 1.1 million dollars to buy it.

According to BBC, this sweater was unearthed in an attic in March.
