“It’s great if you’re stressed and need to unwind. Also, it kind of looks like a lipstick so, you know, nice and subtle," Corrin revealed what she carries in her handbag to British Vogue for a video, which was published on September 15. Watch the video, filmed at The Savoy London, to see what else The Crown’s new Princess Diana never leaves the house without.

Princess Diana who was adored by the People of Whales, had a "lucky mascot" that she used to carry in her bag. Royal protection officer Ken Wharfe revealed how Diana had a vibrator that she nicknamed “Le Gadget." In a 2017 book titled, 'Guarding Diana: Protect The Princess Around The World,' Wharfe mentioned, “The small vibrator, bought as a practical joke after a staff night out in Paris during Diana’s official visit there the previous November, had become her lucky mascot."

"Di became so attached to her dildo that she insisted on taking it on official foreign trips," Wharfe writes.

When she left Le Gadget behind during a trip to Nepal in 1993, she promptly had it delivered to the British Embassy in the capital of Kathmandu. A Gurkha aid brought the handy device — in a sealed bag — on a silver platter at the ambassador’s residence moments before a press reception. “Musto, a self-effacing officer who towered over everyone present, not quite knowing what to expect, foolishly opened the packet and removed the offending item in front of everyone in the room (but, mercifully, not the press, who were starting to gather outside),” Wharfe writes. “There was a stunned pause (and a few bemused glances from Embassy dignitaries), until the silence was broken by Diana, who said, ‘Oh, that must be for me,’ and began to laugh,” he writes.

In the book, he also said Diana had bought the sex toy one morning, after which, he persuaded Lady Sarah McCorquodale, her sister and acting lady-in-waiting during the trip, to hide the vibrator in Diana's handbag. "The Princess discovered it while going through her bag, between meetings with the French president Jacques Chirac and Paul McCartney," he wrote.
