Or should I just mind my own?

iPhone, hip flask and mints ?

Lippy and a packet of polos.

LouIsWaltzingMatilda Thu 01-Jul-10 10:39:52

Apparantly she carries a comb, a mirror, some lippy and a special hook that she can hook her bag onto the table.
Her ladies in waiting carry all the crap that normal women have in their bags.
I can't really see the QUeen rifling through her bag looking for her phone before the person calling hangs up!

Some recent pictures www.rexfeatures.com/set/1200400 got me musing.

Boiled sweets & tissues. Thats what all Grandmas have

A comb? For those carefree hatless and crownless visits?

AgentZigzag Thu 01-Jul-10 10:48:12

Ripped up betting slips?

DD1 said this morning she thought it was weird to think the queen goes to the loo like normal people grin

I think she has lippy, mirror and tissues. I am sure I heard that once.

Forty million quid.

a packed of fags, 4 lighters, half a packet of chewits, her phone in a hello kitty phone holder, 2 hairbrushes, an alarm she presses if she thinks Phillip is going to speak in public, and a little black book of people first to die when she becomes a robot as soon as the technology is available

well in my head anyway

A packet of fags and some doggy biscuits. Maybe some thrush cream <snigger>

A brick.

saggyjuju Thu 01-Jul-10 10:56:58

def a 'murray mint'grin

SagacityNell Thu 01-Jul-10 11:00:54

I love the thought of a Phillip alarm grin Just to give him a minor electric shock if he so much as opens his mouth?

Why does she carry a bag anyway if all the ladies in waiting carry all her "stuff"? (what are they waiting for btw?)

Or maybe she really does have a diary, a couple of pens, some paracetamol, make up and a pack of 10 B&H wink

I have insider information here, and happen to know that she carries spare gloves.

Shaking hands with sweaty folk makes them a bit mingy you know

her wax jacket pockets have poop-scooping bags, polos and pony nuts

Sagacity Nell, so do I! The difference is that I imagined the alarm as emitting some horrible car alarm whine pitched so that only he could hear it.

PollyTechnique Thu 01-Jul-10 11:09:51

spare tiara

SagacityNell Thu 01-Jul-10 11:38:58

lol @ iPad and DS

Can you imagine her being "papped" playing Angry Birds or Professor Layton grin

TheMysticMasseuse Thu 01-Jul-10 12:05:45

I have ALWAYS wondered this. Breathlessly waiting to be enlightened, but spare gloves makes total sense. Oh and the key to the kingdom, non? grin

Sidge Thu 01-Jul-10 12:08:38

Tena Lady, lavender perfume, a hankie and some Pro Plus.

MayorNaze Thu 01-Jul-10 12:09:53

i think:

spare gloves
a hanky (not tissues, how common grin
lipstick
mints in a little posh tin
dog biscuits
a small notebook and pencil to make secret, royal observations
