Gruesome item the Queen and Prince Charles take with them whenever they travel
Reason 57847485 why the royals are in no way like us at all – their packing and travel arrangements.
Even though he does this very thing, Prince William isn’t technically supposed to travel on the same plane as George and Charlotte because two royal heirs should never fly on the same flight together.
Royals also all have to take a black mourning outfit in their luggage, in case a family member dies.
So whereas planning and packing for a holiday is, for us plebs, a happy and exciting process, it’s actually a bit of a morbid affair in parts for the Royal family.
But it gets super-grisly where the Queen and Prince Charles are involved, as they both have to have a bag of their own blood with them on extended trips.
According to Marie Claire , the Queen and her heir travel with a pack of their own blood, looked after by a navy doctor who is always close by.
It makes perfect sense because they will be able to receive blood transfusions even if they are in an area where there many not be a reliable supply.
It’s not all doom and gloom, luggage-wise, though.
The Queen also takes items including pine-scented soaps, framed family photos, Harrods’ sausages, gin, barley sugar and – our favourite – a monogrammed kettle.
And, because she’s the Queen, she brings her own toilet roll which only she is allowed to break the seal on.
