Other than Prince George's nickname for his great-grandmother and her favourite nail polish, there still remains very little we know about Queen Elizabeth II's private life, despite over 60 years of reigning as the monarch.

But in 2012, royal biographer Sally Bedell Smith revealed exactly what Her Majesty carries in that trusted handbag of hers: a compact mirror, a Clarins lipstick, a portable hook to hang her accessory from the table, reading glasses, mint lozenges and a fountain pen.

And while we all knew the Queen is rarely known to carry money on her person - other than on Sundays - we weren't aware of the neat little trick she uses to keep her notes stiff and orderly in her purse.

A source revealed to the Express in 2015: 'She donates to the church collection basket.

'Her butler irons a five pound note into a little square by folding it until you can only see her face,' the source revealed.

We wonder if she rubs her nose for luck like in that 1995 BBC television series?

We don't know about you but the Queen's life hack is sure going to change the way we carry money on a night out (*cough* stuffing a tenner down the padding of our bras)

The news comes weeks after the Evening Standard reported the Head of the Monarchy owns a silver iPod which is docked into a speaker at her Castle in Scotland, reportedly gifted to her by Michelle and Barack Obtain 2009.

The Queen - a queen is more ways than one.
