Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s 1981 wedding cake is now for sale, but a slice costs a hefty sum of money.

The piece of cake has been put up for sale by Channel 4’s Posh Pawn team, and it came from a tier that was stored after the wedding and issued to soldiers who were injured in the Falklands War to celebrate Prince William’s christening in 1982.

Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s fruit cake slice may no longer be eaten, but it may be purchased for almost $900. James Constantinou, the owner of Prestige Pawnbrokers, said that the slice of cake is one of the most unusual items they have for sale.

“One of the most unusual pieces that Prestige has to serve is, in fact, a piece of cake. A lovely slice of history that could be yours for £695. This fruitcake with cream frosting was part of Princess Diana’s original wedding cake in 1981 and comes wrapped up in an ornamental doily in a box. A tier of the cake was not stored away for a year after the wedding and issued to soldiers who were wounded in the Falklands War to celebrate the christening of Prince William. The cake is stored in suitable conditions however it is no longer edible,” he said (via Express).

“These pieces of cake have seen a huge result amongst auction houses in America with lots achieving more than £1,000. This combined with the death of Princess Diana in 1997 has led to a higher demand within the memorabilia market. Auction houses often unearth some very interesting items that are not always so readily available and give great insight into the personal lives of these seemingly untouchable characters. Letter and even short notes from royals often reveal a story and can be endearing, such items often come up for sale and can make thousands of pounds,” he said.

Prince Charles and Princess Diana tied the knot at St. Paul's Cathedral in 1981. Their reception was held at the Buckingham Palace.
