This Is What Queen Elizabeth II Always Carries On Her Travel

Queen Elizabeth II has traveled more than any other royal during her 52-year reign.

Having traveled to over 130 countries since she took the throne, she has visited a variety of countries, although shockingly never to Israel or Greece.

One thing that Queen Elizabeth must always travel with has since been revealed, for a very sad reason.

It also applies to all other royal family members as well.

The Queen must always have a black outfit packed in her luggage when traveling abroad.

This is in case of a death in the royal family, so she is able to wear the appropriate attire for mourning.

When King George VI died in 1952, Queen Elizabeth was in Kenya with her husband Prince Philip when she was informed.

Due to the suddenness of his death, the Queen had no mourning outfit with her for when she returned to London as the leader of the country.

Since ascending to the throne in 1952, Queen Elizabeth II has undertaken a number of state and official visits, making her the most widely travelled head of state in history.

The small insight into the royal life was accurately portrayed in the Netflix drama The Crown.

Other members of the royal family must also carry a black outfit when they travel abroad, which includes Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Even newsreaders must partake in the solemn dress at the passing of a royal family member when they take to the air to announce their death.It isn’t the only royal rule regarding travel abroad.

Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton’s luggage tags are colour coded to make them easy to sort for their royal entourage.

The Queen has yellow labels marked ‘The Queen’, whilst Kate’s are also in yellow.

Prince William has red tags, whilst Prince George has blue tags, both different from the female members of the royal family.
