My guess is the shrine or type of visit determines the color but I don’t know for sure. It seems ivory or cream are usually worn for visits to Shimogamo, Meiji, and Ise Shrines. Grey or black to mausoleums and grave sites.

Ise is dedicated to the sun goddess Amaterasu; Shimogamo and Kasuga Taisha are dedicated to other Shinto deities; Meiji is dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken.

Princesses Akiko and Yoko wore lavender to Yasukuni Shrine which commemorates the war dead. Half-mourning?

Princess Akiko wore pale blue to the enshrinement of Prince Katsura’s spirit.

Princess Kako wore a cream suit, instead of a long dress, to Akama Shrine that's dedicated to Emperor Antoku.

Thanks for the detailed explanations!
Wearing grey colours for mausoleums and grave sites makes sense.

SIX YEARS AFTER: Abe and Prince Fumihito attend event to mark 2011 disaster: The Asahi Shimbun

Many still struggling 6 years after quake, nuclear disaster - The Mainichi
Quote:
[...]
Prince Akishino said his "heart aches deeply" when he thinks about those who are unable to return to their homes due to high levels of radiation.

"It is the hope of us all that each and every one of those who are in a difficult situation will not be forgotten or left behind and the day will come when they will once again live in peace and quiet."

Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko, who were not present at this year's memorial service having attended since 2012, offered a moment of silence at their residence, according to the Imperial Household Agency.
