Forty years after Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer’s marriage ceremony, a royal fan managed to buy a slice of their wedding cake.

The slice icing and marzipan base with a sugared design of the royal coat of arms was from one of the 23 official wedding cakes.

It was given to Moya Smith, a Queen Mother’s household member at Clarence House, who placed it in a cake tin protected with cling film, a handmade label reading “Handle with Care — Prince Charles & Princess Diane’s Wedding Cake.”, signed and dated 27 July 1981.
