A slice of cake from Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s 1981 wedding has officially sold – yes, you read that right. And, it sold for a very unexpected price. It was originally estimated to fetch between £300-£500 ($416-$693) but ended up selling for a whopping £1,850 ($2,565).
The 28-ounce slice comes directly from one of the 23 cakes made for the royal wedding, according to Dominic Winter Auctioneers. Auctioneer Chris Albury says that there was so much hype built up leading up to the auction that it was ultimately impossible to predict what the slice would sell for.
