If your invitations to the royal weddings of Prince Charles and Princess Diana and their son Prince William and Kate Middleton somehow got lost in the mail, there's a new chance to obtain a slice of their nuptial fruitcakes and pretend you were actually there!

Pieces of the now inedible cakes (from 1981 and 2011, respectively) are set to be auctioned off on June 23 at Julien's Auctions in Las Vegas. The elder cake that belonged to Charles and Diana is expected to have a winning bid of $800 to $1,200, while William and Kate's cake is predicted to fetch between $600 and $800.

The cakes come in the commemorative tins that guests received after the festivities.

If this sounds like a lot of money for some very, very out-of-date food, consider that a piece of Charles and Diana's cake sold last year for $6,000, while Julien's sold a piece of William and Kate's cake for $7,500. So hey — now it seems like a market opportunity, right?

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have a cake at their upcoming nuptials that does sound divine... so you might plan to add that one to your collection, too.
