It is a part of a tradition and the Royals cannot skip it! The Christening ceremony of Prince William and Kate Middleton's youngest son Prince Louis took place on Monday and it was during this celebration that the Royals served their guest a slice of a 7-year-old cake!
It may sound gross but it is actually a part of a tradition. The Royals are supposed to preserve a tier of their wedding cake which is then to be served at ceremonies like their anniversary and the child's christening.

A press release from Kensington Palace before the christening ceremony revealed about this. The statement in the release read, "Guests will be served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding cake."
While the ceremony was a glorious affair with the Royal family painting a very pretty picture, this news of serving a 7-year-old cake got everyone cringing.
We hope all the guest survived this episode!Read More
