A handbag fit for the Queen and made in the Black Country

The Queen is rarely seen without an elegant handbag - and her favourite is made in the Black Country.

She was seen with a Launer London Traviata on her arm at the start of her 90th birthday celebrations.

The bag, which costs £2,000, is handmade at a factory in Holtshill Lane, Walsall.

Launer London was granted the Royal Warrant in 1968 and has been supplying the Queen with bags ever since.
