Back in 2011, the world was captivated by the British royal wedding between the late Princess Diana’s eldest son, Prince William, and Kate Middleton.
The wedding itself had all the pomp and ceremony one would expect from a royal marriage, and Kate and William fans can now own a piece of history from that special day, including a menu from their wedding breakfast, which is due to go up for auction along with other royal memorabilia spanning nearly 200 years.
Of course, Kate and William’s wedding breakfast menu shows that the wedding guests, as well as the newly married couple, enjoyed an extravagant three-course meal, including a main course of organic lamb with Highgrove spring vegetables, English asparagus, and Jersey Royal potatoes, according to a report in Hello! Magazine.
Other items up for auction from the royal wedding include two ceremonials, an order of service, and invitations to the service at Westminster Abbey.
There are also other items up for grabs, such as numerous letters and telegrams written and received by British Royals, plus Christmas cards containing photos of Prince Charles and Princess Diana with their children, Prince William and Prince Harry.
One piece of memorabilia slated to fetch a tidy sum is a black and white portrait photograph of Princess Diana, which is expected to go for an estimated $5,000.
On top of all that, the auction also includes two handwritten letters Princess Diana sent to John Gairdner, thanking him for sending her flowers.
The memorabilia will reportedly go on sale at Reeman Dansie’s Royal memorabilia sale in Colchester on February 17.
Speaking about the remarkable collection, auctioneer James Grinter described the collection as “extraordinary,” saying, “It is very rare to find such a remarkable royal collection as this. It spans 200 years from Queen Victoria, through King Edward VII, King George V, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, King George VI and the Queen Mother and our current Queen. The breadth, quality and condition of the individual items is amazing.”
