A slice of the late Princess Diana’s wedding cake is to be auctioned.
The 28-year-old piece of fruitcake – from Diana’s 1981 wedding to Prince Charles – is expected to fetch more than £5,000 when it goes under the hammer in Dorset, south west England, on June 2.
The cake – which is still in its original presentation box – was once part of 23 cakes made for the ceremony.
The confection is being sold by a former royal staff member, who also has cake from the weddings of Princess Anne and Mark Phillips, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.
Christmas cards signed by Diana – who died in a car crash in Paris in 1997 – and Charles will also be for sale.
John Condie from auction house Cottees said: “We have done well with royal-related memorabilia in the past and on offer again this time will be two more of Princess Diana’s personally signed Christmas cards from 1994 and 1995 along with five signed by Prince Charles.
“We will be hoping for more international interest in these items and there is still time for anyone with similar items to enter them into the auction.”
A slice of Diana’s cake sold for £17,000 when it was auctioned in 1998, but a similar slice sold last year only fetched for £1,000.
Jordan’s Queen Rania believes social networking websites such as Twitter can help promote her campaign for better education.
