Prince Charles, Princess Diana wedding day toast sells for £230

A leftover piece of toast from Prince Charles‘s breakfast the morning of his wedding to Princess Diana has sold at auction for £230.

Seller Rosemarie Smith had kept the slice of bread in a cup on her shelf for 31 years, Metro reports.

"At the time my daughter was a maid at the palace and one of her duties was to collect Prince Charles’s breakfast tray from outside his room," Smith said.

"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?’."

Two people engaged in a bidding war over the phone for the foodstuff, with a British buyer winning out.

"There was a round of applause when the gavel dropped then it was like, ‘Oh crumbs… it’s sold!’," said a spokeswoman for the auction house.
