WHAT DOES QUEEN'S MESSENGER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Queen's Messenger

Queen's Messenger

The Corps of Queen's Messengers are couriers employed by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office. They hand-carry secret and important documents to British embassies and consulates around the world. Many Queen's Messengers are retired Army personnel. Messengers generally travel in plain clothes in business class on scheduled airlines, carrying an official case from which they must not be separated - it may even be chained to their wrist. The safe passage of diplomatic baggage is guaranteed by the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, and for reasons of state secrecy, the diplomatic bag does not go through normal airport baggage-checks and must not be opened, x-rayed, weighed or otherwise investigated by customs or airline security staff. The bag is closed with a tamper-proof seal and has its own diplomatic passport. The Queen's Messenger and their personal luggage however are not covered by special rules, so although the diplomatic bag, covered by the passport, is not checked, he and his personal luggage go through normal security screening.
