A pair of undergarments that reportedly belonged to the reigning British monarch Queen Elizabeth II was set to be auctioned for up to $9,000, TMZ reported Sunday.

The monogrammed item, reminiscent of shorts, reportedly came into the possession of a "famous Miami playboy named 'Baron' Joseph de Bicske Dobronyi" more than 40 years ago.

He received the garment from a friend after it was left on a private plane used when the queen visited Chile in 1968.

After Dobronyi's death in June, his estate began planning to auction off the royal panties.
A pair of silk briefs that kept Napoleon Bonaparte warm during his exile on the South Atlantic island of Saint Helena was due to go on sale over the weekend for between $20,000 and $27,000.
