Queen Elizabeth II travels with a large entourage of staff when heading abroad on a state visit.

Having been to over 130 countries throughout her 65-year reign, she is one of the most well-travelled monarchs in history.

Throughout her travels, the Queen also has certain things she always takes with her on a trip.

One of them is a very common item for Britons.

The Queen always has a large supply of Earl Grey tea with her when travelling, which is created “especially for her by Twinings”, according to the MailOnline.

She never adds milk or sugar to the hot drink, and instead just drinks it as it is.

Still water by Malvern was also a favoured drink by the monarch, something she used to always have on a flight with her.

With Malvern going out of business in 2010, it is unknown which water brand the Queen now favours.

Alongside this, there is also a special cake which the Queen never travels without.

A specially made chocolate biscuit cake, or tiffin, is something that she has with her every day.

Darn McGrady, the former personal chef of the queen, revealed to RecipePlus: “The Chocolate Biscuit Cake is the only cake that goes back again and again and again everyday until it’s all gone.”

If travelling, she would even have a senior chef follow her to bring the remaining cake to her.

Being the most well-travelled Queen, there is one country that she has been to the most over the years.

Canada has been visited by Queen Elizabeth a whopping 27 times during her reign.

This is more countries than Queen Victoria, the previous longest-serving monarch, travelled altogether.

As the Sovereign of the constitutional monarchy of Canada, the UK shares a close relationship with the country.
