The auction for Prince Harry’s underwear from his infamous night in Las Vegas just hit a quarter of a million. The event happened ten years ago and saw the royal in compromising positions and with some people in his LA suite.
An ex-stripper named Carrie Reichert claimed she was at the location at the time and recently announced her plans to auction a pair of briefs the royal gave her and give part of the profits to charity. Her other sale items include the swimwear and dress she wore that day.
The auction officially began late last week, and the former stripper’s $1 million goal was a fourth way fulfilled. In a move that shocked onlookers, a strip club owner moved the bid from just past the opening $10,000 to a quarter a million dollars.

Prince Harry’s Underwear Hit A $250,000 Bid
As per TMZ, Prince Harry’s underwear auction hosted by Larry Flynn’s Hustler’s Club is currently at a surprising quarter a million. The article of clothing was gotten off the royal ten years ago during his legendary strip billiards game in Las Vegas.
The auction was organized on the 10th anniversary of the event by an ex-stripper, Reichert, who claimed that the briefs were handed over to her by the father. The former entertainer revealed that the starting bid for the item was $10,000.
Bidding for the briefs officially began on Thursday, and just a few minutes in, the $10,000 initial bid increased to $16,000. The amount soon rose to incredible heights when a San Diego strip club owner placed an offer of $250,000.
Strip Club Owner Wants To Open A Shrine For The Underwear
When acquired, the strip club owner, Dino, revealed that his intention for the briefs was to erect a shrine for people to look at the pricey item. The video provided by TMZ showed the astonished reaction of the former stripper who came to the event in a cocktail dress and the rest of the strippers with her.
Before the auction began, Reichert revealed that she expected the bidding war for the briefs to go as high as a million dollars. She also mentioned that if it did reach that amount, the bidder would be given a vintage Don Pérignon worth $200,000.
Online bidding for the item will reportedly be open till the end of September or until the $1 million mark is reached. Prince Harry, whose underwear is being sold, is yet to say anything concerning the matter.
Carrie Reichert Said Prince Harry Gave Her The Underwear
The night the underwear changed hands was in 2012 in what was publicly known as Prince Harry’s wild night in Sin City. In photographs of the event, the royal was seen in a hotel suite naked, in the presence of two barely clad women.
Reichert, a former stripper in the city, claimed that she was there at the time and was given the royal’s underwear. The ex-stripper also detailed some things Harry did in the hotel room, including playing a pool cue like an air guitar and performing Micheal Jackson’s “Beat It.”
After receiving the item, the 37-year-old reportedly lent it to the Vegas’ Erotic Heritage Museum for some time. They were publicly displayed while in the establishment’s possession. Besides the museum, Reichert also included the item during her striptease act while in the Las Vegas Hustle Club.
The Proceeds Will Go To Archewell Charity
Reichert’s clothes auction also includes her outfit on the day of the royal’s partying craze. She put up her swimwear as well as the dress she had on the same night. While neither will fetch a price as high as the royal’s underwear, it could bring in something.
The ex-stripper previously talked to The Mirror to publicize the auction and revealed that a significant reason for holding it was to make the royal remember his wilder days. She called him a bore and described his now somber nature as “a real shame” during the interview.
The 37-year-old said, “Harry has become such a bore; it’s a real shame. When he partied in Vegas, everyone loved him and his sense of fun. At least these pants are a reminder of what he used to be like… when Harry was the fun prince.” Some of the auction proceeds will be donated to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s charity, Archewell.
