The Story Behind Queen Elizabeth’s Lifelong Devotion to Launer Handbags

Queen Elizabeth II was famously particular and consistent about what she liked and what she didn’t.

For more than 50 years, British label Anello & Davide supplied her with the low-heel loafers she wore on state visits, royal tours, and birthdays, broken in by a “flunky” to ensure they were comfortable. There wasn’t a staff member required to road-test her handbags, however—Her Majesty did that herself.
