Now available for purchase: the Queen’s drawers! TMZ reports that estate of “Baron” Joseph de Bicske Dobronyi has given a pair of Queen Elizabeth II’s underwear—which the “Miami playboy” acquired in 1968—to an auction house. The granny panties, which actually predate her Grandma status, feature her trademark “E” monogram—sadly, the “TMZ” across the butt is a watermark from the photo’s source, and does not stand for The Monarch’s Zenith.
Hansons Auctioneers and Valuers who got $9,000 for a pair of Queen Victoria’s bloomers, say they hope to rope a similar pile of cash for the current Queen’s. Though Liz allegedly left her underthings on a plane in 1968 by accident, and not as a memento for the “Baron” Joseph after a brief but torrid affair, we hope this won’t stop the guy who wrote The Queen from suggesting otherwise in a prequel.
