A slice of cake from the royal wedding of Princess Diana to Prince Charles has sold for $1,375 at auction in Los Angeles.
Described by Nate D. Sanders Auctions as a "classic British fruitcake with cream cheese frosting", the slice – which is wrapped in original wax paper and doily – comes in its original white and silver presentation box.
The cake also comes with a card that has the message "With best wishes from Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince & Princess of Wales."
The wedding of Charles and Diana was held on July 29th 1981 at St Paul's Cathedral, London. Not exactly a small intimate affair, around 3,500 people attended the wedding, while an estimated 1 billion watched on TV or listened on the radio.
The royal couple divorced in August 1996. Diana died in August 1997, when the car she was travelling in crashed in a Paris underpass.
