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 ?

Well it seems this is the subject of much speculation not only on GN! I do feel it's unfair that someone revealed the 'secret' code she uses. Who are these people (called 'sources') who give away Royal secrets; aren't they supposed to sign a confidentiality clause?

I don’t suppose she needs much in it, I did read somewhere that she always has the same make of bag and almost always in black, the same for her shoes.Wonder why that is?

Black matches everything, tho I'm sure I've seen her with different coloured bags.

A mini cow prod, to zap Andrew into line!!

Oh No! That might just encourage him!!!

She could be carrying one of the dogs with her

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.

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.

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

Her knitting.

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!

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

Poop bags for the doggie doo-das?

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 21:55:20

😂

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

A retractable sword?

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".

Grandpajo Sat 15-Jan-22 21:34:07

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

Blossoming Sat 15-Jan-22 21:23:59

Rizlas, stash and lighter?

mokryna Sat 15-Jan-22 21:21:29

Photos of loved ones.

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

BlueSky Sat 15-Jan-22 19:16:27

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

trisher Sat 15-Jan-22 18:46:26

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

NotTooOld Sat 15-Jan-22 17:26:57

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

trisher Sat 15-Jan-22 17:09:12

Rizlas, her stash and a bottle of brandy.

kittylester Sat 15-Jan-22 17:05:40

Her fags and lighter!
