Queen Victoria's bloomers had a 50-inch waist

Breaking News

A pair of Queen Victoria's bloomers have been discovered which show that Britain's longest-reigning monarch had a 50-inch waist .

The size of the underwear supports the theory that the Queen had become morbidly obese towards the end of her life.

The drawers - which dwarf the average British woman's 33 inch waist today - will be auctioned along with a selection of other Royal undergarments.
