<br />
A voluminous nightie worn by Queen Victoria in her later years has been unearthed in a house clearance.<br />
<br />
The pale cream nightdress, which measures a whopping 51 inches across the girth and is embroidered with the Queen's insignia, is expected to fetch £2,000 at auction.<br />
<br />
It belongs to retired antiques shop owner Marilyn Rose who has amassed an enormous collection of treasures at her home on the Isle of Wight, Hants.<br />

The nightdress and a pair of bloomers that belonged to Victoria's daughter Princess Beatrice have been put up for auction with Oxfordshire-based Hansons Auctioneers.
