We all know that the queen doesn't carry any money, right? Wrong! Although her status means that she doesn't need to carry cash or cards like the rest of us, the queen does in fact sometimes carry money — when she's off to church. Her Majesty always donates to the collection, and therefore cash is necessary. It was once reported that she usually gives a £5 note, sometimes £10. Her staff press the money first, so that it's always crisp and folded with the queen's face pointing outwards.
