The Queen of the United Kingdom never travels without these 11 things. A personal supply of blood is genuinely astonishing.
Since ascending to the throne in 1952, the 92-year-old monarch has traveled extensively.
The Queen doesn't bring a passport. She isn't required to have one herself because she issues it.
