Queen Elizabeth uses these items to beat jet lag 1

As one of the most well-travelled royals in British history, Her Majesty has surely had her fair share of jet lag over the years - something that fatigues many experienced travellers.

Despite this, the Queen has historically had a unique way of beating jet lag when she lands after a long flight.

According to The Independent, the longest-serving monarch is known to consume two things to beat jet lag: “For jet lag she takes homeopathic medicines and barley sugar.”

The Queen consumes barely sugar in the form of a hard candy.

Despite this jet lag tip, many experts advise against having sugar to try and starve off jet lag symptoms.

This is primarily because sugar can cause a spike in blood sugar levels which will crash later, and leave most feeling tired.

Barley sugar hard boiled sweets and homeopathic medicines aren't the only thing carried in the Queen’s trusty leather handbag.

Her Majesty is also known to carry a variety of items, including glasses, a pen, lipstick, tissues and a camera.

Phil Dampier, a journalist and author of What’s in the Queen’s Handbag and other Royal Secrets, shared that the Queen likes to carry a camera with her.

The journalist who has written about the royal family for over 30 years said she would bring a portable camera in her handbag "to take pictures of visiting presidents and other VIPs”.

The Queen has previously been captured taking a number of photographs, especially when she was younger and on a number of state visits.

The first camera she received was a Box Brownie from her father before the war.

She then began to use a gold Roller camera when she travelled to take in some of the sites.

According to AnOther Magazine, the Queen was given a Leica camera by the company, after Prince Andrew encouraged her to use it because it was lighter than previous versions.
