The Queen's Secret Signals She Uses To Communicate With Staff

A video explaining how the Queen uses secret signals to communicate with her staff has gone viral on TikTok. Watch it here:

Luke Davidson shared some of Her Majesty's discreet signals on his TikTik account.

In a video, he said: "When the Queen shifts her purse from one hand to the other it means she's ready to finish that conversation.

"If the Queen puts her purse on the dinner table it means she wants the event to be over within the next five minutes.

"When the Queen puts her purse on the floor it means she's finding no pleasure in the conversation and would like someone to help her out.

"And finally, when the Queen twists her ring it means she needs to be rescued immediately."

You might be sceptical about taking Luke's word for it, which is understandable, but it seems the so-called 'secrets' have come from royal historian Hugo Vickers.

He spilled the beans in a 2011 interview with People.

He told the publication: "It would be very worrying if you were talking to the Queen and saw the handbag move from one hand to the other.

"It would be done very nicely. Someone would come along and say, 'Sir, the Archbishop of Canterbury would very much like to meet you.'"

So next time you're chatting to the Queen and this happens, you know you've been pied.

Next year, Queeno will celebrate a whopping 70 years on the throne - which is a staggering amount of time, no matter how constipated.

The upshot of this is that we'll get a four-day bank holiday weekend.

In a statement released on Wednesday (2 June), the Royal Family said: "An extended bank holiday, from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June, will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate the historic milestone.

"The four days of celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflection on The Queen's 70 years of service."

A catalogue of events will be put on to commemorate the milestone, including Trooping the Colour, a special service of thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral, a Platinum Party at the Palace live concert and 'the Big Jubilee Lunch'.

The Big Jubilee Lunch aims to 'bring the Jubilee celebrations into the heart of every community', according to the statement.

It goes on: "People are invited to share friendship, food and fun with neighbours as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

"A Big Jubilee Lunch can be big or small - street party or picnic, tea and cake or a garden barbeque.

"The Big Lunch provides tips and ideas for hosting an event."

Alternatively, you can just sit in the pub for four days.
