Diplomatic passports of the royals

as i was reading this piece of news on cristina and her succesion rights following NOOS, i found it interesting what they mention about diplomatic passports, how they work and what they allow holders to do. i became curious about what the passports that the royals hold allows them to do exactly and what they may look like.

for one, they mention that diplomatic passport holders are allowed to use the authorities suite at airports. in the articles i found, which were about generic on diplomatic passports, not royalty-specific, some of them seemed to mention that this is only permitted when travelling for official purposes, not for private purposes. however, i believe this mustn't apply for royalty, specially for heads of state, due to the need for special security. they also mentioned that their luggages are not checked and that they don't go through the scanners normal passengers do.

(the article also mentions that the spanish royal family has a "VIP card" of airline iberia, with perks being unknown to the public, but that this may allow them to travel for free on any private displacements they may wish to make)

i wonder if anyone else knows more about the diplomatic passports the royals use, as they must have some extra dispositions.

for those interested, here's what the cover of the diplomatic passports look like for the US:

for kenya:
