"At the time my daughter was a maid at the palace and one of her duties was to collect Prince Charles's breakfast tray from outside his room," Smith said.

"I was with her in the corridor and saw that Prince Charles had left some toast on the tray.

"I had been thinking about a keepsake from the wedding and saw the toast and thought to myself, 'Why not?'."

Two people engaged in a bidding war over the phone for the foodstuff, with a British buyer winning out.

"There was a round of applause when the gavel dropped then it was like, 'Oh crumbs... it's sold!'," said a spokeswoman for the auction house.
