From Queen Victoria's large pants to Edward VIII's flashy safari suit here are 5 fascinating pieces of royal clothing, all picked from the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection.

The items were picked by Lucy Worsley who studied thousands of items of royal clothing from the collection in preparation for her BBC series on Britain’s monarchs.

Each of the five items picked by Lucy reveal insights into the physical and metal capabilities of the royals who wore them-from the over-sized clothing of 'mad' King George III to the enormous breeches of the opium, food and alcohol addicted King George IV.
