HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US: Palmerston North's Elizabeth King practicing her curtsy for the right royal birthday party at Government House.

A Palmerston North woman who attended Prince Charles' 64th birthday party is auctioning off a piece of his cake to raise funds for her niece who was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Liz King, who celebrated along with 64 other guests on November 14 after she was drawn from a ballot, said in the auction that her niece, Sophie King, still struggles with the condition.

"My niece is only six and was diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was one, she has only recently been able to walk again after many operations to remove the tumor," she wrote.

"100 percent of proceeds will be going towards my nieces trip to the Gold Coast where she'll be able to enjoy a well deserved holiday with her family."

After 24 hours on the site, the bidding for the miniature fruit cake sat at $77.
