Ladies of Alys's status have invisible minions to carry such things, unless they want to show they've just been at Sieglings or the like....
They're more likely to carry a parasol than a purse, tho a small pouch at the waistband for a lipstick or powder is acceptable.
Sleeves conceal stunners, boots have Vorfemme daggers.
I do wonder what Queen Elizabeth carries in the large bag she is often pictured with. Doggie treats? A recent piece of internet trivia says when she fidgets with it in a certain way, it signals to her staff to escort out whoever she's chatting with & introduce the next, or whatever.
