Princess Diana’s sweater featuring a black sheep among rows of white ones has sold for $1.14 million (£920,000) at an auction by Sotheby’s in New York.

Bidding opened 31 August, and the top bid stayed under $200,000 (£161,000) until the auction’s final minutes.

Sotheby’s had estimated the value of the “sheep jumper” at $50,000 to $80,000 (£40,300 to £64,500).

It did not disclose the identity of the winning bidder.
