It was given to Moyra Smith, a member of the Queen Mother's household at Clarence House.

She preserved the topping with cling film and was expected to raise just £500 but auctioneers said they were "amazed" at the interest.

The cake was bought by luxury boat charterer Gerry Layton in Leeds who bid online.

He said he has put in his will the cake along with his estate is to go to charity after his death.

"I also thought that I could put it up as a raffle prize with some of the money going to Centrepoint, which Princess Di was patron of," he said.

"I will have to think of a way to stop myself from trying to eat it though."

He added he planned to make the trip from Yorkshire to Gloucestershire to collect the cake next week, as he wanted to ensure it remained in good condition.

The auctioneers said bidders from the UK, USA and several countries in the Middle East had shown interest.
