The Queen Mother first purchased a Launer bag in the 1950s, and later gave one to her daughter, Queen Elizabeth.
In 1968, Launer London were given a Royal Warrant by The Queen, and have supplied her with bags since then.
She has bought more than 200 of their bags, according to CEO and owner Gerald Bodmer, and her three favourites appear to be a black leather Royale, a black patent Traviata, and a third custom-made bag.
She also has kept all of her mother’s Launer bags, according to Bodmer.
The Traviata is Launer’s bestselling design, partly due to the influence of the Queen.
