London, Sep 8 (ANI): A bizarre heirloom of the Royal Family has emerged in the form of a pair of oversized knickers belonging to Her Majesty Queen Victoria.

The linen "split drawers", which had been hidden in a private collection for 100 years, measured 52 inches around the waist, and were sold at auction for 600 pounds to the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection charity.

The bloomers, which are a size 38, were on September 7 displayed by Kensington Palace warder Victoria Wright, 22, reports the Sun.

They have an embroidered crown and VR - Victoria Regina, and may go on show when a 12 million pounds overhaul of royal outfits is completed in 2012 at the Palace in central London. (ANI)
