A piece of the wedding cake of Prince Charles and Princess Diana has been auctioned for £1,850 ($2565). At present, its value in Indian currency is around 1.9 lakh rupees. After more than 40 years of marriage, it has been sold at such a huge price in an auction. This piece of cake is one of 23 official wedding cakes that the British royal couple served at their wedding.
The royal ‘Coat of Arms’ in a base made of cake icing (mixture for decoration) and a dessert of almonds featured elaborate designs decorated with gold, red, blue and silver. The piece was given to Moya Smith, a member of the Queen Mother’s staff, who preserved it with a film with a tight grip and dated July 29, 1981. The BBC reported on Wednesday that Smith had placed the icing in an old cake tin and pasted a hand-made label on its lid that read, “Touch carefully – the wedding cake of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. “
Expected to get price up to 500 pounds
His family sold this cake to a collector in 2008. People from all over the world participated in the bidding and the piece of cake was sold to Gerry Leighton on Wednesday. The piece was expected to fetch just £500. But the auctioneers say they are “surprised” by the price it received.
