There is the really impressive reason why Queen Elizabeth always carries a handbag
Would it be rogue to claim that Queen Elizabeth is the most fashionable member of the royal family?
In fairness, she's always decked out in colourful ensembles looking flawless.
Well, one thing you will never see Queen Elizabeth without is her beloved Launer handbag.
Founded in the 1940’s by Sam Launer, the brand made handbags to match the Queen's shoe brand HM Rayne, the Royal Warrant shoe manufacturers.
What's a royal warrant?
Officially known as Royal Warrants of Appointment, they are issued on behalf of the monarch to traders who supply the royal court with goods.
Launer received their warrant in 1968, which is a pretty big deal for any company.
Even now, Queen Elizabeth won't be seen without a Launer handbag on her arm.
Now if that's not brand loyalty, we don't know what is.
You can actually buy your very own Launer bag, if you happen to have a few thousand quid lying around.
