LOS ANGELES -- A 33-year-old slice of cake from Prince Charles and Princess Diana's 1981 wedding has sold at auction for $1,375.
The cake, still in its original white and silver presentation box, was sold online Thursday by Nate D. Sanders Auctions of Los Angeles.
With the box was a card stating, "With best wishes from Their Royal Highnesses, the Prince & Princess of Wales."
Auction house spokesman Sam Heller says the buyer is a private collector.
Although the cake came wrapped in its original wax paper, Heller said it wouldn't be a good idea to try to eat it.
He added, however, there is a small but dedicated group of royal cake collectors.
Some, Heller said, have purchased cakes dating to the days of Britain's Queen Victoria, who married in 1840.
