Bizarre Strict Beauty Rules That Women In The Royal Family Must Follow
Another of the bizarre royal beauty rules that pertains to clothing: always travel with an all-black outfit.
Whenever the royals travel, either for official engagements or leisure, the women are required to bring along an all-black outfit. The reasons behind this one are actually pretty sad – it’s to guarantee that should a member of the family die when they’re away, they can be dressed appropriately for the occasion when they return. When Queen Elizabeth’s father passed away in 1952, she was in Kenya. When she returned to the UK immediately following his death, she had to wait on the plane for someone to bring her an appropriately somber change of clothes. A little morbid, yes, but practical.
