What does Queen Elizabeth carry in that pocketbook?

    What does Queen Elizabeth carry in that pocketbook?

    I mean isn't everything taken care of for her. Car keys? She has a chauffer. Wallet? I'm sure she doesn't have much of a need. Beauty supplies, I'm sure that's taken care of by a team of makeup and hair artists. Cell phone? I'm sure communication to the Queen of England is the best . The only things I can think of are tissues and breath mints! Any other ideas?

    I read some where that she carries good luck charms and candy in her purse.

      Ah, but this question is about her handbag, I think, she will carry her purse in her handgag, usually, people use a purse to carry money.

    For one thing, it's not a "pocketbook" it's a handbag.
    The Queen does not carry money
    However, it has been said that she carries paper money (£5 or £10) for the collection at church.
    When she can, unless on state occasions, she drives herself.  She's a very capable driver, having been a driver in uniform during World war II.
    Lipstick and a compact mirror and perhaps a handkerchief have also been suggested.

      Twilight Lawns, Sorry about that. Pocketbook is an Americanism for handbag. Actually, handbag makes more sense.

      Don't worry, I knew what you meant,  I was just being irritating... or trying to be, and no one was irritated.
      By the way, did you see her last night along with James Bond,
      She apparently loved doing it.

    Where's the pocket book?  I can only see her carrying a handbag.  I would imagine that she has always carried around in it things that all women carry around in their handbags, which gradually increases in size as they accumulate more junk over the years

      Assuming you are British (as I am) pocketbook is American for handbag.  I'd love to know why, since it's not a book, nor does it go in your pocket. But there must be a reason.

      Did you wonder how the Queen managed to get to the Olympics Opening ceremony.

      Well this is how she did it.

      Ah, is that so, how odd.  Perhaps they are equating it with a man's folding wallet, that does look similar to a book, and generally  goes in the inside pocket of a jacket.

    It is probably a hitlist. What else could she possibly be up to?

      I love that comment, MountainManJake.  I am laughing out loud.
      Well said.
