  • The Queen isn’t one to leave fashion to chance. For example, she not only uses her handbag to carry her belongings in, but she also to signal her staff when she’s bored of you. She also has someone to break in new shoes for her, because it just doesn’t do to have blisters in public.

    Now it’s been revealed she meticulously plans her outfits in advance, and it’s not a massive shock to be honest.

    Former royal butler Paul Burrell, has opened up to Yahoo’s Royal Box, saying that every morning, the Queen ‘has to have her outfits brought down to her, all her clothes are kept on the top floor’.

    ‘Her dresser will bring down in the morning two outfits, which are sketched with pieces of material clipped to them so that the Queen can remember whether it’s silk or cotton or wool,’ he added.

    ‘The one the Queen picks is the one which is brought downstairs from up above so she doesn’t actually see her wardrobe with clothes in it.’

    She will then probably accessorise with her favourite handbag, by British brand Launer.
