That's why most experienced royal ladies do not wear skirts or dresses much above their knees, fashion notwithstanding. You have difficulty getting in and out of cars, navigating stairs, etc. while maintaining your modesty. Also, when you are sitting, the dress/skirt rides up even higher and if you are sitting above the audience on a dais, things may be "on show" which you may not want to make public. And made public they will be, thanks to the ever-present press. (I've even had to keep this in mind at church when I'm in the choir or on worship team: we don't wear choir robes and our "space" is raised slightly above the congregation, so it's not just a "royal" problem!
