What a great article. And that s-shaped metal meat hook. on which to hang her purse while she is seated at a table, is a great idea. I wouldn't mind having one of those.

Once I get home, I dump my purse on the closest corner and don't even glance at it until the next morning as I'm walking out for work.
But we are not talking about a normal sized house! The servants would be exhausted if they had to run down all those corridors just to get her specs!

Watching the Andrew interview yesterday walking through Buckingham Palace, I was reminded just how BIG the place is! Talk about finding spec needles in haystacks!

I get tired of my purse getting stomped on under a table. I think that is a cool idea. I wonder if hers has diamonds on it. I mean, is it bling for the queen?

They probably have walkies and page someone from one side of the house and they meet someone half way.

Which hand?

I recently read an article that said that when she has her handbag on one arm things are well, when the other she is bored and needs rescuing by her LIW. Unfortunately I have returned the book to the library and cannot recall which arm means which. Sorry for those of you who are to meet the queen soon. Just look out for her purse changing arms .

HM Almost invariably carries her bag on her left arm - for one thing that leaves her right free for hand-shaking. So watch out if it is on her right arm!

Its a lovely little book and has lots of other snippets of information.

I got my copy from Amazon and I can recommend it to anyone interested in royalty trivia.

I believe Fabulous Fake was refering to the book "What's in the Queen's Handbag: And Other Royal Secrets" by Phil Dampier and Ashley Walton, the book mentioned in the first post

I read it's barley sugars(my own favorite candy)for potential upset stomachs and energy.

Oh, and gloves! In the Burrell book he said she's always has a clean pair of gloves in case the ones she's wearing become soiled.

It's interesting to know what she carries in that purse, but I have to say that is the least endearing thing about the Queen, IMO.

It sometimes strikes me as ridiculous that she's carrying that dang purse around everywhere.

Leave it in the car! Hand it to your assistant! But Jeez.. put it down already!

I find it good to have a purse just so that I have something to do with my hands on dressy occasions. Otherwise, what does one do with them? Fold them in front? No, too prissy. Fold them in back? No, makes my big chest look even bigger. Cross my arms? No, looks stand-offish. Keep my hands by my sides? No, feels strange. Hanging onto a purse is just the thing.
