The black outfit, including a pair of shoes, must be packed on all trips in case a family member dies during their foreign travels. 

Returning back into the UK from a visit in a non-black outfit would be considered inappropriate and disrespectful. 

This rule stems from when the Queen returned to the UK after her father died in 1952.

Her Majesty had to wait for staff to provide her mourning clothes before she was able to disembark from the plane.
