AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis 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.
