We all have our go-to handbag, and since we assume yours is black, we imagine it’s not too dissimilar from the Launer London handbag that Queen Elizabeth has been toting around for years. And seriously, while the access being a royal gets you knows no bounds, if our wardrobe was as vividly colored as the Queen’s, we probably wouldn’t have the patience to choose a purse after spending all that time picking a matching, dress, coat, shoes, and hat. She knows a classic when she sees one, and when your to-do list is as long as hers, time is of the essence, so take a cue from Lizzy and forget the statement bag.
And if you’re not going to take our word for it, just know that we’re not the ones who are following her lead. Despite the handbag’s hefty pricetag, her majesty has sent sales skyrocketing on more than one occasion. So, in honor of the Queen’s dedication to her patent leather pocketbook (that hasn’t been besmirched with the indignity of having to touch the floor), we’ve rounded up 22 of her most memorable looks sporting the ladylike style:
