Beatrice, Eugenie make fairy wings

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are among the stars who have designed fairy wings to go up for sale in a charity auction next week.

The young royals, along with their mother Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, were asked by the Walt Disney corporation to customise the accessories by hand to raise money for famous British children’s medical centre Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Other stars who have lent their support to the charity auction, which will be held on website eBay from September 8 to 18, include TV presenters Tess Daly and Vernon Kay, supermodel Agyness Deyn, sportsmen Tim Henman, Greg Rusedski and James Cracknell, and Bleeding Love singer Leona Lewis.

Leona said: “I loved the idea of the Disney Fairy Wing Auction and was really pleased to be able to help and contribute to such a great cause.

Great Ormond Street Hospital obviously does such an important job and the Disney Fairy Wings are a really fun way to raise money for such an admirable charity.

“I’ll keep my fingers crossed on the September 8 that lots of people bid for my wings on the Disney Fairies eBay page – I’d love to see them raise something for Great Ormond Street Hospital.”

Disney hopes to raise over £10 million for the hospital, and intend to build a new cafe, restaurant and Disney Interactive Zone with the proceeds.
