An elongated handle, compartments, silk lining and the famous logo in the form of a cross link: the accessory, invariably hanging on the arm of the Queen of England, had become inseparable from her silhouette.

All her life, the sovereign has been faithful to this model of bag designed specifically for her by the London manufacturer.

This tailor-made design has not failed to fuel rumors about the size of his personal collection, which would amount to 200 pieces for some, but which in reality only includes around fifteen models at most. according to Launer.

Still, after her death, the fate of the noble leather goods heritage remains mysterious, the details of the Queen's will being kept secret.
