A black outfit
No, Queen Elizabeth isn’t trying to look chic in all black. In fact, there’s a reason she wears neon outfits all the time. But among her colorful clothes, she always makes sure to pack a black outfit in case tragedy strikes. Her Majesty was on royal tour in Kenya when her father passed away but hadn’t packed a mourning outfit, so she needed to wait onboard in Britain until a black dress was delivered. Now, she and these other royals are always prepared with a black outfit.
