Duke of Kent's heirlooms raise £2.1 million - double the reserve price at Christies

Proof that in these hard times even the Royal Family are having to tighten their belts and sell off a few heirlooms. Some pretty interesting-looking stuff, too. A shame that some of it looks to be leaving the country, but at least it is all going to people who will hopefully appreciate the historic and cultural value of the pieces as well as the monetary value.
