An exquisite, silver-jewelled bag owned and used by Princess Diana in the 1980s has been sold for $15,186 (around AED 55,770) at an auction in the US.

The satin-lined bag was given to a member of the royal household and comes with a letter confirming its authenticity.

According to Boston-based RR Auctions, it demonstrates "Diana's fabulous lifestyle and refined taste".

The bag is one of 79 items from a variety of sources from Diana's life - mostly clothing, jewellery, signed papers and photographs, and even a piece of her wedding cake - that went under the hammer.
