A sterling silver card case that belonged to Britain's late Princess has sold at auction for nearly USD 21,000.

The ornately designed case with leather interior pockets was a gift to from her grandmother.

It fetched the highest price out of 79 items connected to the British royal at an auction that ended yesterday, conducted by Boston-based RR Auction.

The case was among belongings donated to charity months before her death on August 31, 1997 in a Paris car crash.

A 17-inch (43-centimeter) silver necklace with a capital "D'' charm that Diana is thought to have worn as a teen sold for almost USD 9,000, while a black metal mesh handbag sold for more than USD 7,400.

Diana's handwritten French vocabulary book from her time at a Swiss finishing school sold for more than USD 15,000.
