Royal Christmas Cards Land On eBay

Christmas cards sent out and signed by both Prince Charles and Princess Diana to the Tryon family have somehow landed on eBay, much to the family's distress. So far, a hand-signed Christmas card by the British royal couple in 1991 was sold for £1,080 already last week.

The family has maintained that all Christmas cards are usually disposed of and even if they are kept, they will never be sold. It's not as if the family needs the money, right? At this point, the family doesn't even know how the old Christmas cards could have made their way to eBay.

Well, maybe a "recycling lady" found them and sold them for a few pennies to someone who knows the good stuff and this owner just thought that now is a good time to let go of them for a profit?
