This is so they are seen to be respectful when dock back in the country.
There was an occasion in royal history when this didn’t absolutely go to plan.

She was then required to wait in the even while the appropriate outfit was brought to her.
She was then able to depart the airliner with her black attire.
The newest member of the Royal Family won’t contest to find black outfits to pack during royal tours.
Meghan Markle has showcased a slues of black suits and dresses since joining the Royal Family, regard for it previously been seen as a faux pas.
She has often sported her Alexander McQueen evil suit, as well as a Givenchy dress for a London exhibition and an Emilia Wickstead blacklist gown in Ireland.
