Queen Elizabeth often packs her own blood when travelling abroad

A Royal Navy doctor also accompanies the Queen on tours, having researched the nearest hospitals in advance. In countries where a reliable blood supply is questionable, the Queen and the Prince of Wales both travel with their own personal packs of blood following in their convoy wherever they go.

Their doctor is never more than a few paces away, carrying a bulky medical bag containing a mobile defibrillator and all manner of emergency medicine. The Prince of Wales’s retinue is smaller than the Queen’s (as he is not head of state) but it often includes an artist, who sits painting at an easel as the Prince comes into view.
