The jet-setting Queen
As the most travelled monarch in UK history, Queen Elizabeth II has surely come up with her own list of handy tips and tricks for every travel conundrum possible. Read on to find out what she can’t leave Buckingham Palace without.
Jet lag medicine
Queen Elizabeth II has needed to come up with a system to beat jet lag with all the travel she’s done. Her cure? Homeopathic remedies, including barley sugar candies, according to the Independent. The sweets can supposedly adjust the body clock to a new place by helping the blood sugar match the eating schedule in the destination.
A black outfit
No, Queen Elizabeth isn’t trying to look chic in all black. In fact, she is usually renowned for wearing neon outfits all the time so she can stand out in the crowd. But among her colourful clothes, she always makes sure to pack a black outfit in case tragedy strikes. Her Majesty was on royal tour in Kenya when her father passed away but hadn’t packed a mourning outfit, so she needed to wait onboard in Britain until a black dress was delivered. Now, she is always prepared with a black outfit.
