Queen Elizabeth has proved that when she likes a brand, she fully commits to it. She relies on one shade of Essie polish for her nails and there are many more.
And now, she has also travelled with the same luggage since her honeymoon with Prince Philip in 1947.
For her honeymoon trip to Broad-lands in Hampshire, England and Birkhall estate in Scotland, Princess Elizabeth purchased a set of Globe-Trotter’s luggage.
According to the luxury travel brand’s website, she still continues to use her cases to this day. Queen Elizabeth uses it to store her impeccably coordinated suits while travelling.
Globe-Trotter is known for its classic leather travel cases.
Globe-Trotter’s products are handcrafted by artisans in England. They use the techniques and the machinery that date back to the Victorian Era.
This brand is not only seen with the Queen.
Other than Queen Elizabeth in the brand’s list, it has quite an impressive list of historical and fictional clients. The list varies from Sir Winston Churchill circa 1924 to James Bond in the 2015 film, Spectre.

And now, the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge are there too. According to our research, Prince William and Kate Middleton also own Globe-Trotter luggage from a recent collaboration with the Goring Hotel. The stylish cream-coloured suitcase was spotted as it was carried across the tarmac during their five-day tour across Canada with their two borns, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Globe-Trotters are designed to be passes on to next generation.
Like many other luxury luggage brands, Globe-Trotter’s trolley cases are designed to last and be passed through the generations. With the amount Queen Elizabeth has travelled over the past 70 years.
However, her suitcases may have been updated in the last couple of decades to a newer Globe-Trotter collection. The suitcase Her Majesty purchased in the year 1947 likely would have been from Globe-Trotter’s original collection, which was designed in 1897.
Currently, there’s a continuation of the brand’s first model with the traditional vulcanised fibre corner caps available in many colours like brown, navy and red.
