During their 16-day tour, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will take part in 76 engagements – meaning both royals will have to pack a number of clothes with them.
While all members of the Royal Family must abide by a set of strict fashion rules, that’s not always the case when it comes down to travelling.
According to a royal etiquette expert, Meghan – who has dropped big hints over whether or not she is pregnant – might have a little more leeway with her wardrobe during her overseas tour with Harry.
“We often see the Royals adopt the customs and culture of the country they are in”
Myka Meier, of Beaumont Etiquette, told Cosmopolitan: “When travelling, we often see the Royals adopt the customs and culture of the country they are in.
“For instance, if a country they visit it’s a sign of respect to dress in a certain way, they will do so.
“Often we see Royals wearing outfits from local designers to show respect and support for the country they are visiting.”
But this doesn’t mean that royals can wear whatever they want when they’re travelling abroad – it’s that they have more freedom with their wardrobe choices.
Previously, the Queen donned green for a historic visit to Ireland in 2011, while Kate Middleton wore a maple leaf fascinator during her trip to Canada in 2011.
Luckily for some members of the Royal Family, they don’t need to spend time stressing about an appropriate attire to wear during their trips.
Myka revealed: “Senior royals will have a team of aides within the palace to help prepare them for every event they are attending and speaking at.
“They will be briefed on who they are meeting and any significant protocol behind addressing other important guests as well as any political, religious or cultural sensitivities to be aware of.”
Also one of the morbid rules for a royal is that they are expected to travel with a black ensemble on hand.
This is so that the royal is fully prepared in the case of a family member dying.
Then-Princess Elizabeth was in Kenya when her father passed away in 1952 and she didn’t bring a change of black clothes.
She had to wait inside the plane for one to be delivered before stepping out.
