The 28-ounce slice is expected to be sold for a whopping $700, around N288k.

While this may seem like quite a steep price for an old piece of cake, some fans of the Royals' feel it's not a huge amount of money in terms of celeb memorabilia.

According to TMZ, the sale announcement came on the exact day marking what would've been Diana and Charles' 40th wedding anniversary.

The magical wedding took place July 29, 1981, at the St Paul's Cathedral in London.

The piece of decorated iced cake features the royal coat of arms and was gifted to Moyra Smith, a member of the royal household, by the Queen herself.

Smith stored the slice in a floral cake tin with a label on top reading:

“Handle with care — Prince Charles & Princess Diane’s [sic] wedding cake,” with the date “29/7/81," The New York Post reports.
