I wonder what she carries around in it? Comb? Book? Purse? She has no need for cash and no time presumably to read! Any thoughts ?

Werthers originals and an I-phone ?

Smelling salts.
My mum always had them in her bag, along with a clean hanky.

She probably carries a stress ball in it now! Poor woman.

Personal choice.? Does there have to be a reason?

Photo ID aka postage stamp.

Took me a minute but I got there! 😂😂

Her fags and lighter!

Rizlas, her stash and a bottle of brandy.

Suicide pill. 'One can stand this no longer!'

Her will so she can change it when she wants (Is Andrew still in?)

Paper hankies, should she sneeze or find there’s no loo paper!

My son always says her handbag is a gun cleverly disguised as a handbag. The trigger is in the handle

Photos of loved ones.

A ginsters sausage roll if she's not keen on the food offered.

I understand that on the days she receives the Prime Minister she carries a brick in it, so she can take a swing at him if he becomes too insufferable, as the one the character in Fings Ain't Wot They Used T'be, by Lionel Bart, carried "for awkward customers".

She's obviously not a good aim which is very surprising!

A retractable sword?

Bonneygran Sat 15-Jan-22 22:03:02

Well done, Ladies, what a hilarious thread! I’ve wracked my brains but can’t better your humour and perhaps love for HRH, a Grandmother like us!

Calistemon Sat 15-Jan-22 22:43:25

Poop bags for the doggie doo-das?

JenniferEccles Sat 15-Jan-22 22:50:07

I love the thought that she signals her wishes to aides through her handbag.
On the floor - get me out of here!

I’m perfectly sure if I were the Queen my handbag would be firmly placed on the floor within about five minutes!

Blossoming Sat 15-Jan-22 23:02:45

Her knitting.

trisher Sun 16-Jan-22 12:35:49

Her mobile phone- who has her number???? With her favourite tracks on it - like the Sex Pistols God Save the Queen

As women's clothes are still made without serviceable pockets I imagine HM had a packet of kleenex or a hankie in her handbag.

Probably a powder compact as well - I don't remember seeing her with a shiny nose, do you?

There may not be anything in it, of course - when she was young all grown-up ladies had handbags and most of them clung to them all their lives. HM is probably doing the same.

If she's reading this I hope she enjoys it and has a good laugh. Although I would advise her not to read any of the Andrew or H&M threads definitely! It won't be good for her health.

trisher Sun 16-Jan-22 15:16:01

So that's it!!!! A phone with a link to GN! What do you suppose her Username is? Come on Queenie own up.
