A slice of toast left over from Prince Charles' breakfast on the morning of his wedding to Princess Diana has sold at auction for £230.
The piece of bread was kept as a memento by Rosemarie Smith following the 1981 wedding, which was watched by 750 million people worldwide.
Mrs Smith, whose daughter worked for the royal family for nearly three decades, described how she acquired the toast, which was kept on her shelf in a cup.
'At the time my daughter was a maid at the palace and one of her duties was to collect Prince Charles' breakfast tray from outside his room,' she said in a press statement.
'I was with her in the corridor and saw that Prince Charles had left some toast on the tray.
'I had been thinking about a keepsake from the wedding and saw the toast and thought to myself: "Why not?"'
The toasted breakfast treat was sold to a British buyer.
A spokeswoman for the auction house added: 'The slice of toast went to a UK buyer.
'There were two telephone bidders fighting it out for the slice. It was exciting.
'There was a round of applause when the gavel dropped then it was like "Oh crumbs... it’s sold!”’/metro.co.uk/
