The Queen’s Worrying ‘Secret Code’ When She’s Out And Its Meaning

Former ladies-in-waiting also disclosed some time in the past that Her Majesty always carries her favourite lipstick as well as kleenex and a comb with her.

Supporters of the royals have been advised to beware of a disturbing signal in the event that they meet the Queen following experts exposing the “secret code.” Her Majesty uses to ask for help.

The monarch is known for her composure in the face of a variety of social engagements throughout her 66 years on the throne.

Although because of her calm demeanour, royal experts said that Her Majesty and her aides have come up with a ‘Secret Code’ to prevent the Queen from being stuck for too long while talking with people.

According to the royal historian, Hugo Vickers, “some of the signals included in the ‘Secret Code’ are disturbing.

Mr Vickers said: “It would be very worrying if you were talking to the Queen and saw the handbag move from one hand to the other.

“It would be done very nicely, someone would come along and say, ‘Sir, the Archbishop of Canterbury would very much like to meet you.’”

Political reporter Annabell Crabb also picked up on the significance of the Queen’s handbag following the appointment of George Brandis as the new Australian High Commissioner to the UK in 2018.

Commenting on the meeting between the Queen and Mr Brandis after he took on his new role, Ms Crabb said: “The handbag is really the only kind of code that the Queen can use in public to alert her attendants and friends as to what’s going on.

“If she’s tired of somebody, and needs to be rescued in a social situation, she’ll do something discreet with her handbag.

“If she’s standing up, and has got her handbag over one arm, she’ll switch it to the other arm and that’s the cue for some lady-in-waiting to bustle up and say, ‘excuse me, you are urgently needed to speak to the Archbishop of Canterbury’.”

Still speaking about the Queen’s meeting with George Brandis, she said, “When George Brandis met the Queen in the audience room, the bag was placed and remained on the seat, which is a good sign.

“It means, ‘I don’t need rescuing’.”

Ms Crabb added: “If it had been on the floor, that would be really, really bad. It means, ‘get me out of here stat.’

“And if it’s on the table, it means, ‘I’ll give this person another five minutes and then get me out of here’.”

It’s almost impossible to see the Queen without one of her signature bags, however, royal biographer Sally Bedell Smith in 2012 revealed the Queen always makes sure to have £5 and £10 notes to donate when she heads to church on Sunday.

Former ladies-in-waiting also disclosed some time in the past that Her Majesty always carries her favourite lipstick as well as kleenex and a comb with her.

Meanwhile, royal author Phil Dampier, the author of ‘What’s In The Queen’s Handbag And Other Royal Secrets’, also revealed the Queen always has a collection of keepsakes which she receives from her family.

Mr Dampier wrote: “A collection of good luck charms given to her by her children, including miniature dogs, horses and saddles, clutter up the bag.”
