Despite it might sound crazy at first, this fact has a very logical explanation.

There is always the queen’s medical practitioner among the people accompanying her on her trips. The doctor is responsible for knowing the location of all nearby hospitals in the cities that they visit. She also has to carry a bulky medical bag containing a mobile defibrillator and emergency medicine.

Apart from that, the doctor also has Queen Elizabeth’s personal pack of blood which will be used for a transfusion if necessary.

She prohibits open windows

The certain windows in Buckingham Palace are closed and could be opened only for few hours. The point is that the building should look perfect from the outside. Opening windows from its front side can ruin the view. That’s why the windows there can be opened only at a certain hour.

She hates ice cubes

Queen Elizabeth II hates the sound of ice cubes inside her glass. At the same time, she finds the sound of ice balls much more musical, so that’s what she uses to cool her drinks.

They say it was Prince Philip who invented the special machine that makes spherical ice specifically for his wife.

She carries a portable hook in her bag

Despite the fact she is a Queen of England, she is still a woman so many interesting and unexpected things could be found in her purse.

It turns out that the queen attaches this hook under tables to hang her bag on it. This is important because she sends signals to her servants with her bag. For example, if the bag is on the floor it’s a sign that Queen Elizabeth II wants to leave. But the bag hanging on the hook means nothing, the queen just feels more comfortable this way.

She has a special servant to break her shoes in

A special female servant with the same shoe size as the queen, breaks in new shoes for Elizabeth II. Although Elizabeth II has preferred similar shoes of the same brand for many years, she still doesn’t want to experience the discomfort that new shoes usually bring.

She loves raspberries but never eats them in public

Raspberries are one of the queen’s favorite fruits but she can’t eat them in public because their seeds can get stuck in teeth which is unacceptable. Blackberries are also prohibited at official receptions while in cucumbers and tomatoes all seeds are be removed beforehand.

She has numbers for all of her outfits

Each queen’s outfit has its number and a certain record in a special journal which says where and when she wore this exact outfit. Since the queen prefers bright colors and a classic style in her clothing, the outfits can easily be mixed up. And it’s improper for her to show up in the same outfit or in the same color 2 times in a row.
