The Queen’s handbag

For the Queen, handbags are not only a fashion accessory to complete her beautiful outfits, but she also uses her beloved handbags to communicate with her staff.

Uncomfortable situation? The Queen will put her handbag on the floor.

Does dinner need to be wrapped up? The handbag will be placed on the table.

What does the Queen carry in her handbags? Royal biographers disclosed that the Queen carries a folded £10 note for her Sunday donations to the church collection. The most important items in her bag are a pocket mirror and lipstick. Like every woman, even the Queen needs a bit of a touch up now and then! Some speculate that she might also carry treats for her corgis, tissues, and a small comb, while others believe her handbags are filled with good luck charms and family pictures.

While this remains a mystery, we are sure you will find the perfect bag for you here at Caroline Gardner.
