Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot at Westminster Abbey on April 29 2011.
And following the wedding vows, the Queen hosted a luncheon reception for 600 lucky guests at Buckingham Palace before Prince Charles invited 300 for an evening ceremony.
The ornate menu card, featuring a small stain over the dessert course, from the intimate reception was sold for £800 in Los Angeles, California, in 2015 and reveals what was on the menu for the select few after the wedding.
The dinner menu was printed on ivory card and features a green ivy border with birds in-flight at the top.

Prince Charles’ heraldic badge, also known as Prince of Wales' feathers, sees three ostrich feathers emerging from a gold coronet with the motto, “Ich Dien”, which translates as “I Serve”.
The card features green italic font, which reads: “William and Catherine, Friday 29th April 2011.”
And the elegant three-course meal also included a wine flight along with coffee and fresh mint tea for after.
The bespoke menu started with marinated South Uist salmon, Lyme Bay crab, wild Hebridean langoustines and fresh herb salad.
To accompany the starter, the guests were served a 2009 Meursault, Domaine Guyot-Javillier wine.

To end, a trio of Berkshire honey ice cream, sherry trifle and chocolate parfait was served with Laurent Perrier Rosé.
The carefully-crafted menu included vegetables from the private residence of the Prince of Wales, Highgrove House, and honey from the home county, Berkshire, of the Duchess of Cambridge.
