LONDON (AP) - A revealing dress worn by Kate Middleton at a 2002 charity event attended by Prince William when they were university students has sold for 65,000 pounds ($104,860) at auction.

The black see-through dress with a blue trim was bought by an unidentified buyer Thursday in London. The auction price, which excludes a 20 percent buyers’ premium, was originally expected to reach 8,000 pounds.

Some commentators maintain that the dress played a role in sparking the royal romance that started shortly after the event.

It was initially intended to be worn as a skirt, but Middleton wore it as a short dress with black lingerie underneath.
