While accompanying the Queen, family members must always remain attentive towards Her Majesty to look for signals she may pass. For example, Kate is expected to always pay attention to signals from the Queen. If Queen Elizabeth wants to leave a dinner party in five minutes, she puts the bag on the table, and that would mean the Queen wants to leave within five minutes. And remember that everyone must stop eating when the queen finishes the meal! Does that help with being able to enjoy a gathering freely? We doubt, but as long as Her Majesty is taken well care off, its a good rule to follow.
There is also a code to signal that she is tired of talking to someone! To do this, she changes the bag from one arm to the other. Technical as that may sound! The Queen has her elegance in conveying signals, rather than saying something directly to the other person’s face, Her Majesty prefers giving out signals. The Queen has her way of conducting herself with sheer grace and elegance, and it must be said that many people need to take lessons of grace and poise from the Queen.
For the deaths, the Queen’s Private Secretary is responsible for informing people of the importance of the situation and kicking off the planned protocol.
