Queen Elizabeth Has Been Traveling With The Same Luggage Since Her Honeymoon In 1947

Date January 12, 2018

It seems that Queen Elizabeth is a fan of one brand and one style. Once she realizes she likes it, she sticks to it forever. On the one hand, she saves on the wardrobe wearing the same outfits, just changing the colors. On the other hand, there are numerous brands that she just admires.

For example, the Queen always wears the same shade of Essie polish. She has more than 200 Launer handbags. And, most surprisingly, she has been picking the same vintage Globe-Trotter luggage for 70 years!

In fact, their trolley cases are designed to serve generation. But it has been 70 years, so it is quite possible that the Queen got an updated newer collection.

In addition, Sir Winston Churchill was another historical clientele of the brand. The traveler Sir Edmund Hillary conquered Everest with Globe-Trotter's luggage, and Captain Robert Falcon Scott made his famous expedition to Antarctica with travel cases of the brand on board. That's impressive!

Other members of the family, like Duchess Catherine, have also been spotted owning the cases of the same brand, so it seems to become another royal tradition.
