The Queen’s Knickers…

Good morning, Netizens…

Alexandra Kim, curator of the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection, holds a pair of bloomers which once belonged to Britain’s Queen Victoria, as she poses for the photographer at Kensington Palace, in central London, Tuesday. The underwear, which has a 56-inch (142-centimeter) waist, has been added to Britain’s Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection at Kensington Palace. It has a matching chemise, is embroidered with a “VR” and is believed to date from the 1890s.

Yes, as even the AP story that accompanies this picture observes, the Queen in the late 1890’s was a bit portly. The poor old Queen had had a string of kids, and was eating well at the time.

I cannot help but wonder if anyone in a future generation will suddenly discover some bit of underwear that belonged to royalty of any kind in our generation, and add it to some fantastic collection of knickers belonging to American royalty.

It seems unlikely to me, although given the incredible number of perverts and other strange creatures we have living in Spokane’s enlightened modern society, I suppose anything is possible. However, I do not imagine we would have a royal ceremonial dress museum for our own Mayor Queen Mary Verner’s knickers, would we?

Stranger things have happened in Spokane though.
