Confession: I’m not obsessed with The Crown like the rest of PEDESTRIAN.TV. Like, I get the appeal, it’s just not my thing. I’ve never been a Royalist, but, again, I totally understand why other people are. They are an interesting bunch.
But anywho, while I don’t spend my days and nights obsessing over the hit Netflix series, ya know who does? One Iggy Azalea, who has confessed her love for The Crown in a fan girl tweet.
The Aussie rapper has been binging the hit drama series during quarantine and she’s noticed an intriguing detail in a recent ep that’s really grinding her gears.
“The wildest part about The Crown on Netflix is that the Queen carried her purse around her house,” she wrote on Twitter. “Imagine having a house so big, you need to take a purse to the kitchen.”
Now, according to New Idea, Queen Elizabeth ll is a ‘yuge handbag lover and often carries one around to complete her lewk, and since ya girl always likes to look her best and often entertains visitors in her home, it’s likely that she insists on carrying her bag to look straight fire.
Gerald Bodmer, CEO of luxury handbag manufacturer Launer London, told the publication that “she doesn’t feel fully dressed without her handbag. But if the Queen doesn’t like what we’ve made her, she won’t wear it. She definitely knows what she wants.”
Meanwhile Phil Dampier, author of What’s In the Queen’s Handbag, told HELLO! that “she would feel lost without it.”
“It’s her most valued possession and a valuable tool,” he said. “The Queen would never go anywhere without her handbag. The only time she might not have it by her side is when she is in a completely relaxed environment, like up at Balmoral.”
So basically, it’s perfectly plausible that she and her bags are quite literally joined at the hip.
The Crown is streaming on Netflix now.
