Like today....she carried this cute number to her grandson's wedding. She went straight from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey. Then she went straight home. She didn't drive, and if she needed a hankie she could have tucked one up her sleeve or on her bra.
But, this is something that Grandma J noticed before.......
and this adorable bag
Must be her favorite black patten leather
here we go again.
So, Grandma J decided to put an end to all the speculation. Especially since no one gives a dang but her. Here is some trivia she found about the contents of the Queen's purse.
**"Enquiring minds want to know: just what does Queen Elizabeth carry in that purse? As it turns out, there is more to the royal purse than its meager contents. It doubles as a signal device. When the Queen is carrying out her royal duties at some function, she uses her purse to communicate with her servants. When she shifts the bag from one arm to another, for instance, it means she’s ready to leave. When at a banquet, if the Queen sets her purse on the floor, it’s another bad sign. She finds the conversation boring and wants to escape. However, if the royal bag dangles happily from the crook of her left arm, she is happy and relaxed."
"One thing that can always be found inside the Queen's purse is an S-shaped metal meat hook that she can place on the edge of a piece of furniture and hang her purse on it." Grandma J bought one once at the Dollar Tree.
"She always carries a metal make-up case given to her by Prince Philip as a wedding gift. She carries a collection of good luck charms, most of them gifts from her children, including dogs, horses, saddles, and horsewhips, reports the Daily Express, and photos of her children. She is never without her mints, chocolate drops for her corgi dogs, and a crossword or two snipped from the papers by her attendants."
**Majesty magazine reports that the Queen carries a comb, a handkerchief, a small gold compact and a tube of lipstick in her handbag. On Sundays, she carries paper money to place in the collection plate at church.
One more thing........
Who dressed Princess Ann?
And when you dis Fergie, she gets even and dresses her girls funny.
XOXO Grandma J
