When you think of Queen Victoria, the last word that pops into your head is "seductress".

But behind that stern face, Queen Vic was quite the vixen.

In her journal she wrote about the relationship she had with Albert beyond the bedroom door – and wow, is it racy.

Apparently, he was a very sensual lover and used to enjoy nothing more than removing her stockings. Ooh la la.

Now, a pair of the silk stockings that she used to entice Prince Albert has been put up for sale.

A pair of her bloomers once sold for £10,500

With the royal VR monogrammed on the black and white silk, they're a far cry from what you'd pick up in Ann Summers. Plus, they're about 165 years old…

They've only been worn a handful of times, but the horny hosiery is expected to fetch £300 at auction.

Auctioneer Nigel Kirk told the Nottingham Post: "Although Queen Victoria may not be our longest serving monarch anymore, we expect there to be a great deal of interest – quite possibly from abroad, rather than from UK collectors.

"The market in America and Russia is very strong for these sorts of items so we could see lots of buying online or over the phone."
