Queen Elizabeth's Panties

In a Twist

4/4/2011 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A pair of used panties once owned by Queen Elizabeth II were all set to be sold to a British auction house -- but TMZ has learned the sale is stalled because of Prince William's wedding.

You may remember -- Hansons Auctioneers and Valuers wanted to buy the royal bloomers from the estate of the late "Baron" Joseph de Bicske Dobronyi  -- who got the panties after the Queen left them on a plane in 1968.

TMZ spoke with Charles Hanson -- who tells us, "Out of respect and courtesy for a person of such dignity and rank," he doesn't want the deal to go down until after the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Meanwhile -- the late Baron's estate has already put up most of their items on eBay -- and plan on auctioning the panties in the U.S. if the Brits don't act fast.

Does nobody check these things? Those are confirmed to be the 'royal undergarments' of Queen Elizabeth I, not Queen Elizabeth II. Her royal initials are even sewn on the side...

I thought everything the Royals have are monogrammed by the company that produced it. There should be a tag on it that says something like, "Company de Pantaloons" "by order of Queen Elizabeth the II", or "The Queens Beaver Cheaters".

Can you imagine? I'm guessing there is no way to stop this, it is not a police state after all but honestly, if you respect her at all you would either destroy them or just give them back and why did he keep them at all? Pervert much or just opportunistic? The royals do deserve better treatment than this.

Who cares about the bloomers (British for panties) The greatest story was when Charles phone was hacked into and was heard telling Camilla he wanted to reincarnate as a tampon and live inside her! Now that was something!! Wonder what the Queen thought about that! Better still, wonder what Diana thought about it!

Heh, heh, heh...those bloody royals eh what!
