It was given to Moyra Smith, one of the Queen Mother's employees at Clarence House, following the 1981 ceremony.

The slice, which measures 8ins by 7ins and weighs 28oz, has been preserved in cling film in an old cake tin for four decades.

It was kept by Moyra's family until 2008 when it was acquired by a collector who is now selling it with auctioneers Dominic Winter, of Cirencester, Gloucs.

In total, 23 official cakes were made for the wedding, including a centrepiece 5ft tall layered fruitcake weighing 225lbs.
