Debris taken from last week’s Prince Philip car-crash site has been removed by eBay after bids brought the auction total to over C$113,000.
Seller morbius777 posted the listing, confirming all money raised from the auction would go to Cancer Research UK.
They wrote, “Condition is used. Parts are probably not reusable. Parts are clearly visible in many of the online videos of the event.”
The post continued, “This is for the 3 plastic parts shown. There is no glass involved.
“May even have Phil’s DNA on it, if you wanted to clone him or anything.”
The user also confirmed the items were not stolen and had been left at the roadside for way too long.
After news of the listing hit headlines Monday, eBay then released a statement to say they’d removed the post.
The message read, “This listing has been removed in line with our policy relating to the sale of any item that seeks to profit from human suffering or tragedy.”
On Thursday, Philip was unharmed but shaken when his Land Rover flipped on its side after colliding with another vehicle near the royal Sandringham estate.
The other driver, a 28-year-old woman, suffered minor injuries, while a 45-year-old female passenger sustained a broken wrist; the passenger’s nine-month-old baby, also travelling in the car, was unharmed.
