Yesterday, The Queen inspected the ceremonial "staff" that is carried by the Royal Gurkha Rifles regiment, during an audience at Buckingham Palace. The "staff" is 6 feet high and made of bronze and silver. Like a Sovereign’s "Colour" (a certain type of flag) it is greeted with a Royal salute when it appears or is marched off parade. The Queen held the audience to mark the 25th Anniversary of the formation of The Royal Gurkha Rifles regiment. @officialtheroyalgurkharifles
Another interesting fact about Queen Elizabeth is that she always carries a small purse with her, no matter where she goes. She is seen multiple times with the wallet, officially dressed, even if she stayed inside the Buckingham Palace.
However, it is not the same bag, as the Queen has more than a hundred handbags from various designers. The Queen prefers mid-size and small purses, in which no more than a couple of items can fit, preferably small ones.
Therefore, many do wonder, what possibly can fit in the Queen’s small purse, and is there something particular that she always carries with her?
As follows, it is recently discovered that Queen does carry a specific item with her all the time, and it is a portable handbag hook.
The piece serves when the Queen needs free hands, and there are no desirable places where she can hang her bag. The catch is made in a way that can be attached to flat surfaces.
Besides the unique purse – holder, the Queen likes to wear a lipstick and a small mirror, reading glasses and mints. These items are somewhat regular in her purse, says stuff who were serving the Queen for many years.
