Bids soar to £1,450 on first slice of Kate and William's wedding cake ever to reach auction... and there's still two weeks to go
Quote:
The first ever slice of cake from the wedding of Kate and William has attracted bids of almost £1,500 as fans of the royal two vie to get their hands on the royal memorabilia. With two weeks still to go on the auction, the bidding stands at £1,453 - but as is customary, the auction house expect a flurry of last-minute bids to push the value much higher by the time bidding closes on 24 May.
I suppose you could view it as a collector's piece but really, £1,453 for a year-old cake?

Why not, there is a market for everything, even faces of Jesus burned into grilled cheese sandwiches get exhibited in museums in the US

Also, didn't a piece of Wallis Simpson and the Duke of Windsor's wedding cake reach close to $100,000 at a Sotheby's auction in the last two decades? Whoever wins this piece better hold on to it, they're guaranteed a huge profit...

Prince William's heartbreaking confession: 'My wedding day was the first time since she died I really missed my mother'
Quote:
Prince William has revealed how he'd wished that his mother Princess Diana had been able to see his wedding day. The prince said it was the 'one time' since she died that he'd really missed his mother and he'd felt 'sad' knowing she wouldn't be there. William opened up during U.S. show The Jubilee Queen with Katie Couric, set to be screened on ABC at 9pm today.
A lovely article.

Really nice (ans somewhat sad) to read William and Harry's loving words of their mother.

Wedding Guest Gifts Wills&Kate

I have read that at aristocratic weddings the couple give a small gift to their guests to commemorate the big day. I found this picture on a different site. Anybody know if these are available for sale?
