This yellow gold evening bag adorned with coral and turquoise studs, 44 diamonds and a golden chain belonged to Princess Grace of Monaco.

The Hermes, "Kelly Bag", brown leather handbag designed for Princess Grace of Monaco. 
And a Lacloche, golden woven evening bag adorned with 35 diamonds, belonged also to Princess Grace of Monaco.

The handbags of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. When the Museum asked several Royal Houses for a handbag for their exhibition they received to their surprise six! handbags of  Queen Elizabeth, just by mail not even with a courier.

Straeter, black leather handbag with light and photo of Prince Bernhard, belongned to Queen Juliana of the Netherlands, 1953.

Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands preserved her painting necessities in this bag. 1900-1925.

It was rather dark inside this room, so it was difficult photographing.
