Queen Victoria’s outfit is to be sold after 100 years of being inside the royal wardrobe for £15,000 at an auction.
After her death in 1901, the outfit, including a pair of bloomers, bodice, skirt and leather boots was given to royal photographer Alexander Lamont Henderson.
The items were then passed down through generations and are now in the possession of Henderson’s great-great grandson, Roderick Williams. He decided to sell the collection to make room for his own clothes and experts have predicted that the royal outfit could fetch more than £15,000.
In December, the dress Princess Diana wore to a gala dinner at the White House in 1985 sold at auction for £264,000.
