Queen auctions Balmoral stay on eBay site

NEW YORK -- A dozen lucky vacationers will be queen for a stay now that Britain's Elizabeth II has put a week at a cottage on her royal estate at Balmoral in the Scottish highlands up for bid on Web auction site eBay until June 18.

Proceeds will benefit the NFL Alumni "Caring for Kids" charity in honor of the queen's Golden Jubilee.

Winning bidders will stay in the nine-bedroom, five-bath Alltnaguibhsaich Lodge and be able to tour Balmoral's 55,000-acres on one of the queen's royal ponies.
