The Queen and Kate Middleton always travel with THIS on their luggage
Queen Elizabeth II and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, always travel with specific tags on their luggage whenever they go away.
The Queen, 91, Prince Charles, 68, Prince William, 35, Kate Middleton, 35, and Prince Harry, 33, have all flown abroad to attend a variety of royal engagements.
Her Majesty has made more than 250 overseas visits, William and Kate completed a royal tour in Germany and Poland in the summer this year and Harry recently flew to Toronto, Canada to host the Invictus Games.
But whenever they travel their luggage is always marked in a specific way.
Rather than filling in luggage tags with their name and address, their name is simply attached to the cases, according to royal blogger Gert’s Royals.
Queen Elizabeth II just has ‘The Queen’ marked on her tags which are always yellow in colour.
The Duchess of Cambridge has also been known to use yellow tags, while Prince William has red, Prince George has blue, Princess Anne has green and Prince Charles has red.
While the Queen has travelled far and wide, there is one European country she has never visited.
She has visited 116 of the 193 members of the United Nations over the years during her many tours.
whenever they travel their luggage is always marked in a specific way.
But the one country she has not visited since taking the crown at the age of 25 is Greece.
She visited once as a young woman before marrying Prince Philip in 1947 after being invited by Prince Philip’s first cousin once removed, King Paul.
Royal historian Hugo Vickers told the BBC that Prince Philip is technically a “Greek Prince,” so it is an “interesting” omission.
He stated: ”Prince Philip doesn’t like Greece, because they put his father on trial, and he might have been executed. In 1922, they all had to flee.”
Vickers also believes that the Queen might not have been invited by the current Greek president since.
Prince Philip has returned to the island by himself whilst visiting his mother in Athens before she moved to the UK in the 1960’s.
The royal consort was born in Corfu, Greece in 1921 having been born into Greek and Danish royal families.
But his family were forced into exile after Philip’s uncle, King Constantine I, was forced to abdicate following the war.
Believing they were in danger, they fled the island when Philip was just 18 months old.
He then renounced his titles to take the surname Mountbatten when becoming a British subject before his marriage to the queen.
