The royal protocol controls the travel of the British royal family outside the United Kingdom, and the fashion they wear, as the royal dress is required to be largely modest and to stay away from short, off-the-shoulder dresses and open from the back, in addition to thin hats on the head, and content with simple accessories of feathers on the hat.
The royal clothing design team carefully selects every detail that the family intends on their foreign tour, from colors that may reflect the colors of the country’s flag, as Kate Middleton wore green when she went to Ireland in honor of the national color of the Republic, to the traditional clothes of the countries they visit out of respect for customs. and traditions.
