There are even secret royal signs, which are known to family members and staff. For example, if Her Majesty switches her bag from one hand to another, it’s a signal that she would like to end the conversation, after which a member of the staff will shortly come up and interrupt the conversation. If the Queen puts her purse on the table, it means that she’s ready to go.
