- When the Queen is talking to someone and, in the process, starts to shift her purse from one hand to the other, it means she's ready to finish the discussion.
- If you were having a conversation with the Queen, and she put her purse on the floor, that would be an ominous sign for you. This action means that Her Majesty isn't enjoying your little chat and needs a lady-in-waiting to give her a hand.
- When Her Majesty travels, shes typically accompanied by as many as 34 people, including her private secretary and his deputy, their secretaries, two dressers, a hairdresser, two ladies-in-waiting, a valet, press officers, eight police bodyguards, the Foreign Secretary and their people, and many others.
- One more proof that Her Majesty likes traveling in comfort is the fact that she drinks only her Earl Grey tea and only from her monogrammed kettle. She has both these things in her baggage wherever she goes.
- She only flies by private jets. As for the rest of the family, theres a chance that you might see one of them on a commercial flight, probably even in economy class!
- The Queen frowns upon open windows in Buckingham Palace. Well, to be precise, only the ones that decorate the outside of the building.
- The Queen's extensive wardrobe has long become the stuff of legends. Not only does Her Majesty prefer brilliant, vibrant colors and classic styles, but she also can't appear in public in the same outfit or even color two times in a row!
- One more paradox is that Her Majesty loves raspberries but wont eat them in public. The explanation for this mystery is simple: tiny raspberry seeds often get stuck in teeth, and that's unacceptable for the Queen.
- She hates the sound ice cubes make inside a glass. At the same time, if theyre not ice cubes, but ice balls, Her Majesty doesn't have anything against them.
- In her handbag, along with other necessary things, the Queen always has... a hook! She attaches the hook under tables every time she needs to hang her bag.
