The reigning Queen of England, Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, is one of the most captivating figures in history. She became queen at the age of 25, and her reign lasted over 70 years, making her the longest reigning monarch in the United Kingdom.
However, being the sovereign of a country entails not only a share of duty for the country and its citizens, but also certain privileges and secrets that only a queen may possess. And, if we’re being serious about this, we have to recognize that Queen Elizabeth has a lot to offer. You may read some of them below, as she celebrates her 96th birthday today:
NEVER WEAR THE SAME CLOTHES MORE THAN ONCE.
Queen Elizabeth has never worn the same dress twice. Of course, this is not her choice, but rather a requirement of royal ethics. To put it another way, the queen cannot afford to wear the same gown since the visitors may perceive it as an insult and contempt.
PATENTS AND PASSPORTS ARE NOT REQUIRED.
Did you know Queen Elizabeth doesn’t have a passport or a driver’s license? Are you curious as to why? She doesn’t have to confirm her identification at any point. This is for the only reason that they are issued by the same authority.
NEVER TRIES THE FIRST NEW SHOES
There are no special guidelines for selecting a new pair of shoes; simply avoid having weary or swollen feet, and be clean and sweat-free. But not in the case of Queen Elizabeth. She’s never had the pleasure of trying on a pair of shoes because her devoted maid (who has the same number of feet as her) always does it for her, including strolling about in them for a few minutes.
ALWAYS TRAVELS WITH HER OWN BLOOD BAG.
Unlike regular residents, who must constantly carry some form of identification, such as a driver’s license or a passport, Queen Elizabeth does not. However, in the event of an accident, you should always have a blood bag with you. Another fascinating truth is that the queen does not require a passport because they are issued by the legal authorities. Someone puts the shoes on for her and walks around in them for a few minutes.
