This is just in case someone in the family were to die while they were away. This ensures that when they arrive back in the UK, they are dressed appropriately to match the sombre mood of the nation. This is now a compulsory rule that the family has to adhere to, but there was one occasion in which they were caught out, which you will remember vividly if you are a fan of The Crown. In 1952, the Queen was in Kenya with Prince Philip when they heard the news that her father had sadly passed away. She hadn’t brought a black dress with her on the trip, meaning she had to wait on the plane for one to be delivered, so that she didn’t arrive in the country wearing unsuitable clothing.
