Turns out not everything Kate Middleton touches is gold. While dresses, blouses, jeans and shoes that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is photographed in often sell out within days, there is one item no one seems to want: Her old car.
Current owner Simon Brazil received a total of 23 bids on the Volkswagen Golf, but none topped his reserve price.
The blue two-door belonged to Kate while she studied at the University of St. Andrews and often ferried her and Prince William about the countryside on weekends.
Brazil bought the car in 2009 for 1700 pounds.
Meanwhile, Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton has car problems of her own. Her swanky BMW Z4 got the boot — literally. A bailiff clamped a boot on Pippa’s $60,000 car for reasons unclear, but such action is often taken after one too many parking tickets.
We know where Pippa can find another set of wheels…
