Picture it: You’re the queen, you’re touring the world, your poor arms are sore from all. That. Waving. The solution?

A hand-waving decoy machine, naturally.

Luckily, you’re not the queen, and the real queen happens to have her very own hand-waving machine already. Yep, according to Robert Hardman’s book, Queen of the World, Elizabeth’s daughter Anne revealed the secret—a gift from some Australian students.

According to Princess Anne, “They gave her a stuffed glove on a wooden lever so that you could tweak the end of the lever and this hand went to and fro, I think they thought it was rather cheeky but Her Majesty was thrilled.” Of course she was. Wouldn’t you be thrilled?

Next question: Does Meghan Markle need one to shut car doors?
