The cake which was given to Moya Smith, a member of the royal staff, was kept by her and dated July 29, 1981. The cake icing features a detailed design of the royal coat of arms in gold, red, blue and silver.
The cake was bought by Gerry Layton on several occasions above its estimated price of 300 to 500 pounds.
“I thought I would add it to my estate, which will go to charity after I die,” he said, as reported by The Associated Press.
Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer on July 29, 1981. Over 20 wedding cakes were provided for their wedding by various companies. Charles and Diana separated 11 years later in 1992 and divorced in 1996.
Diana died in a car accident in Paris in 1997.
