SUMMARY: - The Queen of England never forgets her personal pack of blood, which can come in handy in case of a transfusion. - Queen Elizabeth II prohibits the opening of certain windows in the palace simply because the building should look perfect from the outside at all times, and open windows can really ruin the beautiful view. That's why the windows in Buckingham Palace can be opened only at a certain hour. - We all have odd and sometimes even unreasonable pet peeves. For Queen Elizabeth II, it's the sound of ice cubes inside her glass. She finds the sound of ice balls much more musical and prefers to use them to cool her drinks. - When she sets it on the table during dinner, it means that she wants to end the event in the next 5 minutes. When she puts her bag on the floor, it's a sign that she's not really into the conversation and wants her lady-in-waiting to rescue her from it. But if she hangs her bag on this portable hook that attaches under the table, then everything's fine and the Queen is having a good time! - When it comes to appearance and style, everybody has things that can make or break their first impression of someone. As for Her Majesty, she doesn’t really like facial hair. That's why you won't find that many bearded men in her close circle. - The stylish Queen doesn't play games when it comes to her wardrobe. Each of her garments has its own number so that it can be recorded in a special journal that says where and when she wore all her outfits. - Queen Elizabeth's food preferences are pretty peculiar as well. For instance, she’s not all that into soups and potatoes! Of course, these dishes are still served in Buckingham Palace for everyone who loves them. - Let's be real, breaking in new shoes is no fun. So wouldn't you love to have someone else do it for you? Well, the Queen surely thought this through and got a special female servant with the same shoe size. - Even though the Queen of England loves to experiment with lots of bright outfits, when it comes to nail polish, she's been extremely faithful to one brand for almost 30 years now! According to the c brand website, the nail polish color called “Ballet Slippers,” which retails for only $9, is Queen Elizabeth's absolute favorite.
