Perhaps iMeowbot can create a hoedown with the Queen, complete with earbuds... I see a new avatar contest winner here.powermac666 said:
Well put.wdlove said:The Queen just comes from a era when a lady always carried a handbag. A lady from the greatest generation.
I think it's a generational thing and I'm sure some of it is utilitarian as well. I wonder why she carries such a large bag around though?sushi said:Well put.
A classy lady carried a proper handbag at all times. Not a stylish purse, but a simple and eloquent handbag
Interesting how times have changed.
I remember reading an article somewhere about this - they said the Queen keeps gloves in it. Lots and lots of pairs of gloves. She is constantly shaking hands with the public. This way she can meet and greet without getting a cold every week.JeffTL said:I imagine that Her Majesty keeps a few tissues, some money, her driver's license, a bottle of aspirin, and perhaps an iPod in there, if she likes that sort of thing. But I'd bet money on there being Kleenex in Queen Elizabeth's purse.
I remember reading that she uses her handbag as a way of signaling to her ladies-in-waiting. Depending on which area of which arm the bag is hanging, they know if she's happy talking to whoever she's talking to, or whether she needs rescuing. A faithful retainer can then usher her away to someone more interesting, without causing embarrassment.Ugg said:I wonder why she carries such a large bag around though?
you do realize they are skipping Charles right?Macmaniac said:I bet she has a crowd taser just in case someone gets a little too close. She is pretty cool in my opinion they don't make em like they used to. After Charles takes over I wonder where England's monarchy will be headed.
Lucky she doesn't have to go through airport security on state visits then. Assuming the Queen is not considered a terrorist threat!Jaffa Cake said:Also, as well as the usual mints and pics of the grandkids, apparently she also carries a large meathook in there. When she's at a dinner, she uses the hook to hang her bag off the table so she can get to its contents without bending over in an unseemly way.
