South's Four Diamond bid was a trial bid.

Four Spades and Five Clubs were cue-bids showing First round control.

When North was unable to bid Five Diamonds - which he would have done with the King - South gave up on slam.

West led the Knave of Clubs.

Declarer won the King and cashed the Ace of Clubs and the King of Spades crossed to the Queen of Spades.

Cash the Ace of Spades, discarding a Diamond.

Ruff a Club.

Cash the Ace and King of Trumps exposing a bad break.

Then exit with a Trump.

East is end played to lead a Diamond from the King or a Spade, in which case Declarer can throw a Diamond loser from one hand and ruff in the other.

Either way, the Declarer has to give one Diamond trick and make the contract..
