Queen’s secret signals for when she wants to leave conversations

The Queen has spoken to millions of people during her lifetime and has come up with ways to communicate with her staff during events, it has been claimed.

Her Majesty is used to small talk, but when she's finished talking to someone and would like to leave she has several signals, reports Mirror Online.

Queen Elizabeth is believed to use her wedding ring and her handbag to inform her staff when she wants to leave the conversation or situation.

A shift of the bag from one hand to another is an indication she is ready to move on from whoever she is speaking to.

If she wants to leave an event all together, the monarch places her handbag on a table.

If she can't use her bag, the Queen uses her wedding ring to send messages to royal officials.

She gives it a discreet twist if she she would like to end a conversation quickly, and a more dramatic spin of the ring means she is particularly keen to leave.

Once they've seen the signal, staff will then pop over and interrupt, saying the Queen is needed for something else.

Queen Elizabeth II and the Prince of Wales, followed by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at a reception at Buckingham Palace in London to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the investiture of the Prince of Wales.

Royal historian Hugo Vickers told People : "It would be very worrying if you were talking to the Queen and saw the handbag move from one hand to the other.

"Luckily, they’d let you down easy.

"It would be done very nicely. Someone would come along and say, 'Sir, the Archbishop of Canterbury would very much like to meet you'."

But it's not just when she's out and about that the Queen is believed to have tricks up her sleeve.

While at Buckingham Palace the Queen is said to have a hidden buzzer which she rings when she wants staff to open the doors and escort the person she is speaking to out.
