Did you love watching Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s royal wedding? Then you might be interested in the opportunity to bid on the official wedding menu, which in princely terms describes all the luxurious foods that the 300 posh guests consumed, according to the Australian Women’s Weekly.
Although it’s been four years since the wedding between Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, the official menu was kept private until the auction details emerged. The scrumptious wedding feast included marinated salmon, crab, langoustines, and organic lamb for near-and-dear royal guests such as Prince Charles and Prince Harry.
Other items up for auction include a unique signed photograph of Queen Victoria and her three future kings as well as a telegram sent by the Queen to the midwife who delivered Prince Charles. The royal memorabilia covers two centuries of memories, and will be sold at Reeman Dansie Auctioneers in Colchester next Tuesday.
If you want to bid, expect to pay between $600 to $1,000. But be forewarned. When a slice of the royal wedding cake was sold in Beverly Hills in December 2014, the successful bidder paid $7,500.
Amid all the auction planning, Princess Kate is focused on preparing for her second baby, which is due in April, reports Hello magazine.
But her pregnancy hasn’t slowed down the busy Duchess. Attired in a luxurious white coat, she headed off to paint with Olympic sailor Sir Ben Ainslie.
After majoring in art history at St. Andrews, Kate happily took on the task of enhancing the 1851 Mural, as it’s known. This project was accomplished by a group of local artists together with students representing six different schools.
The Duchess also revealed that she enjoys painting with Prince George, who is now 18-months-old. It’s one of the busy little boy’s favorite hobbies.
As the Inquisitr revealed, sources have said that Princess Kate and Prince William are expecting a baby girl. And while she’s taking care of her health, Kate also is making time to follow in Princess Diana’s footsteps by doing charity work that focuses on frail children.
For example, she visited the East Children’s Hospices (EACH). At the Norfolk location, she wept with emotion after greeting the ill children and their loving families.
In addition, sources told OK magazine that they plan to name the little girl Diana, after Prince William’s mother.
“[Kate and William] felt they needed to either go with something very traditional, like Elizabeth or Mary, or something that had a lot of meaning to them. So they’ve gone with the latter.”
Prince William wanted to honor his mother in that way, added the source.
“She was just his mom, and she adored him and his brother. He had such a happy childhood, and that was all due to her.”
