Kate Middleton's University car set to fetch £30,000 on ebay tomorrow

A very special piece of Royal memorabilia is set to go on sale tomorrow! Bidders will have the chance to purchase Duchess Kate's university car. The indigo blue Volkswagon golf was purchased by the Middleton's in Edinburgh for £10,000 back in 2001. They gave it to Kate when she began attending St. Andrew University. She was often pictured driving around in it during her early years with William. In 2007 Kate was famously given a ticket by a traffic warden. (Note his smug expression standing behind Kate in the photo Also I love her style, this photo was taken back in 2003, the preppy look looked lovely on her.)
The car was sold by Kate's brother James to Sonny Brazil. Sonny has barely driven the car as he suspected it would be worth a substantial amount should William and Kate ever choose to marry. There were also a pair of cufflinks left in the car which will also be sold. Perhaps they once belonged to William? Brazil has high expectations about tomorrows auction 'I went to an auction house in Dorset a few weeks ago and they said it would be worth 30k plus, purely because of the name on the log book. It's amazing to think I only paid £1,400 for the car and now it's worth far more than that. James Middleton was very nice, a real gentleman. At the time I didn't put two and two together but when I saw the first owner on the log book was Catherine Middleton I was very excited'. Bids for the 1.4 golf will be begin at £20,000 tomorrow, If any of you reading choose to place a bid, I wish you the best of luck! :)
