Rare Royal bloomers go on the auction block and if you’re royally kinky and royally rich, you can own them.
Pictured is the Queen of England and a pair of her knickers that somehow ended up discarded on a private jet while she was on a goodwill mission in Chile way back in 1968. The royal underpants were retrieved by a male passenger who was also on that same flight, a guy known as “the Hugh Hefner of Miami” — and now that guy is selling Elisabeth’s unmentionables — on eBay — almost 5 decades later…
The bloomers are embroidered with the letter E (for “Elizabeth”) – four small pearl-like buttons and a monogram of the Royal crown, along with two flowers on a stem with leaves, and are hemmed with crocheted lace.
eBay lists the undies as an “item that has been previously used” in good condition, despite some yellowing with age. They have a 26 inch waist and are 16 inches long.
The listing also notes, “Since Buckingham Palace or the garment maker have not confirm or deny the authenticity that this pair of underpants are from Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, the estate cannot confirm its provenance and it is the buyer’s responsibility to do that on their own before bidding. In either case this is an excellent example of a vintage undergarment of that era and very collectable.”
