The Queen’s wedding cake for sale

For those of us on the outside looking in, owning memorabilia is as close as we are going to get to experiencing the celebrations of a royal wedding.

And when it comes to getting a true taste of the event, what can be better than a slice of wedding cake?

It’s why I’m so excited by a slice from the Queen’s marriage to Prince Philip in 1947, which is currently auctioning at our sister company PFC Auctions.

Own this and you own a piece identical to that eaten by the great and the good of the British royal family on November 20 that year: George VI, the Queen Mother, the soon-to-be Elizabeth II, not to mention royals from around the world. queen-wedding-cake

Very few examples of the cake are known – after all, it was designed to be eaten – which makes its rarity an added attraction to potential buyers.

With nine days left until the auction ends it is selling for just £133 (approx. $205), an absolute steal when you consider that a slice from Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding sold for £1,917 ($3,000) with PFC Auctions last year – a world record for a slice from the wedding.

Get bidding here.
