They were, by any standards very big royal pants.

Measuring 52 inches round and accompanied by a 66in chemise that could accommodate the most regal bust.

The pants are understood to have been bought by an Israel-based royal memorabilia collector.

Michael Hogben of Westenhanger Auctioneers said:

They were certainly some of the strangest items I have sold in 40 years.


"I was surprised by the amount of interest. We had telephone bids lining up from America to Israel."

There appears to be a growing trend for celebrity under-garments.

Elsewhere, the "tighty whities" worn by Walter White character in the Breaking Bad television series sold at auction two weeks ago for AUD$11,239

Other performers whose scanties have been sold off recently range from Elvis to Michael Jackson.
