QUEEN ELIZABETH II does not get blisters on her royal feet thanks to a special servant who makes sure she is never in discomfort, unearthed reports reveal.
The Queen is well-known across the globe for her enduring elegance, even in her ninth decade. She has outfits for every occasion in an array of different bold, bright colours. From royal blue to luminous yellow, Her Majesty has been seen in every eye-catching shade.
Stewart Parvin told the Sunday Times in 2012 that one of the strangest privileges the monarch enjoys is that she has a special assistant to break in her new shoes for her so she does not get blisters.
The stylist said: “[The shoes] have to be immediately comfortable.
“She does get someone to wear them.
“The Queen can never say ‘I’m uncomfortable, I can’t walk any more.’

“She has the right to have someone wear them in.”
Mr Parvin also claimed that it is not difficult to make Her Majesty look impeccable because she simply does not perspire.
He said: “We always choose fabrics that don’t crease, we go to extra lengths to line them so they don’t.
“I am somebody who creases all their clothes.
“I’m always hot, the Queen is very lucky, she doesn’t crease her clothes (because) she doesn’t glow.
“If you are a cold person your clothes don’t crease.”

To ensure that no outfit is ever used twice for the same occasion, the Queen’s stylist also said he keeps a computer spreadsheet which lists every item she wears alongside the date, time and details of the engagement.
Even the jewellery and accessories used to complete the ensemble are written down, meaning that the monarch can “mix and match”, allowing her to reuse her favourite clothes while always looking to be wearing something new.
The Queen’s favourite item is a yellow dress, known as “buttercup”, Mr Parvin revealed.
