The royals travel with their own bags of blood

Chapter Two: Bags o’ Blood

Scoop Princess Diary #2. The Royals travel with their own bags o’ blood. I mean, really, don’t you hate it when you’re traveling, get run through by a swordfish and the ER just ran out of your blood type?

“A personal blood bag doesn’t usually make your packing checklist for trips, but for the royals anything is possible. According to the Telegraph, the queen and her son Prince Charles always bring their own personal bags of blood with them to countries where the blood supply is questionable. But in order to do a blood transfusion, you need to have a doctor on hand, which is why a Royal Navy doctor accompanies every royal on his or her trip for emergencies.”

Creepy but Jehovah witnesses won’t take other people’s blood, they need their own or synthetic and it really expensive.

  1. Talked to a retired Mountie not too long ago, who did security for HM years ago. He said the royal entourage not only carries the royals blood type but also included carrying every antidote for every known poison in the world.
