Queen Elizabeth: She often travels with a number of items when abroad

Queen Elizabeth, 91, is a frequent traveller and has seen more of the world than any other British monarch.

She has visited over 130 countries since taking the throne in 1953, going on a number of state visits every year.

Due to the enormity of her travels, she also has a number of things that she always takes with her when she is away.

There is one item that many may overlook, which her staff always make sure to take.

The Queen always takes her own toilet paper when travelling

The Queen always has her own toilet paper when travelling, according to a man who went on 20 royal tours with the Royal Family.

It states that it is always sealed with a sticker so that only they will know they have used it.

He told the Telegraph: “Sanitary ware is marked or sealed with stickers to warn others that they are reserved.”

It could be assumed that the toilet paper brand the Royal Family use is Andrex, having been granted the Royal Warrant in 1978.

Their website states: “The Queen granted us a Royal Warrant in 1978 as a mark of recognition that Andrex® is a regular supplier of toilet tissue to the Royal households.”

It then jokes: “Good choice Ma’am.”

She also always travels with her own monogrammed kettle, as well as her own make of Twinings Earl Grey tea.

The Queen is known for drinking it without milk or sugar, unlike the rest of the nation.

She also carries a portable hook to hang her handbag on, to cleverly avoid having to keep it on her lap or on the floor.

They can cost as little as £1 but are a handy gadget to always have, as well as being small enough to slip into a pocket.

Jean Willis, one of the Queen’s cousins was quoted in The Lady magazine in 2012 stating: “I watched the Queen open her handbag and remove a white suction cup and discretely spit into it.

“The Queen then attached the cup to the underside of the of the table. The cup had a hook on it, and she attached her handbag to it.”
