A pair of underpants rumoured to have belonged to the Queen are to be sold at auction.
Hanson’s Auctioneer’s will be selling the lingerie on behalf of the estate of Miami playboy ‘Baron’ Joseph de Bicske Dobronyi.
Dobronoyi was given the underwear by a friend after the Queen allegedly left it on a private plane during a visit to Chile in 1968.
The piece was discovered among the playboy’s belongings, upon his death, by family members.
The mid-thigh length underpants are cream coloured with a darker pattern on the bottom lining of both legs, and feature an ‘E’ stitched into the side.
Auctioneer Charles Hanson could not say for certain whether the underwear belonged to the Queen.
He told the Daily Mail: “We have been approached by an individual in the United States to sell some underwear which he claims once belonged to The Queen.
“I can’t say too much at this stage but more will emerge over the coming weeks.”
A pair of the Queen’s bloomers went for £4,500 during a previous 2008 auction.
