Over the years, the mystique around the queen's bag has increased, especially when it was revealed that she uses it to send coded messages to her staff. Apparently, if she places it on the table it indicates she would like to wrap things up in the next five minutes, and when she puts it on the floor, it signals to her lady-in-waiting that she would like her to come rescue her. But what secrets are contained inside the bag?

That pop of fuchsia lip colour won't reapply itself, will it? The queen has been spotted on more than one occasion touching up her lipstick in public, and former First Lady Laura Bush once revealed that she herself followed suit: "The queen told me it was all right to do it." Her Majesty's chosen brand is thought to be Clarins, and the small metal mirror she uses was a wedding present from Prince Philip.

This may sound a little unusual, but actually it's genius! The queen was once spotted at dinner discreetly spitting into the plastic suction cup attached to a metal hook.

We all know that the queen doesn't carry any money, right? Wrong! Although her status means that she doesn't need to carry cash or cards like the rest of us, the queen does in fact sometimes carry money — when she's off to church. Her Majesty always donates to the collection, and therefore cash is necessary. It was once reported that she usually gives a £5 note, sometimes £10. Her staff press the money first, so that it's always crisp and folded with the queen's face pointing outwards.
