The New York Post reports:
Most people have a strategy for getting out of boring conversations at parties — but Queen Elizabeth II has a whole secret code and trained staff to help her escape from sticky social situations, according to reports.
When Her Majesty is done talking to a guest, she simply moves her iconic Launer London handbag from one arm to another, and her aides swoop in to end the conversation.
If the company is really dire, she puts the bag on the ground or spins her wedding ring around to summon an emergency intervention....
And things get really underhanded when the royal wants out of a meeting at Buckingham Palace — she presses a hidden buzzer that signals her staff to quickly usher the guests out of the room.
