QUEEN ELIZABETH never travels without this unusual item when on a state visit abroad.
Queen Elizabeth II, 91, is one of the most well-travelled royals in history, having travelled to over 130 countries during her reign.
Having taken the throne in 1952, she has racked up the air miles in the last 65 years which accounts for more than 42 trips around the world, according to the Press Association.
Along with her entourage, the Queen is also known for taking a variety of items with her overtime she goes overseas.
One of them is said to be personalised for Her Royal Highness.
The Queen always has a monogrammed kettle when travelling, so she is able to have her usual cups of tea.
Her usual drink is an Earl Grey tea, which she takes in large quantity when abroad.
It is said to be specially created for her by Twinings to ensure the highest quality.
Unlike the rest of the nation, she doesn’t add milk or sugar and simply drinks it as it is.
Her entourage contains 34 people on most journeys, to ensure she has everything needed.
According to the Telegraph, this contains: “Master of the Household department, to oversee catering and logistics, her private secretary and his deputy, a secretary for each of those secretaries, two secretaries for the Duke, two dressers, a hairdresser, a valet, two ladies-in-waiting, an equerry for military liaison, press officers, eight police bodyguards and the Foreign Secretary and his or her staff.”
A doctor is also amongst the entourage and has the blood of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.
This is in the case of an emergency and if the country they are in has limited access to healthcare.
Travelling frequently can be a struggle for anyone, and the Queen is no exception.
It has been revealed that she beats jet lag with a very unusual method, according to an old report by the Independent.
She uses a combination of homeopathic medicines and barley sugar in an attempt to combat it.
Studies have found that sugar could actually make jet lag much worse.
