In 1916, in Vienna, Austria, presented the king with his wife - which, as the queen was - was entirely covered only by the fact that it is the queen and not have to be looked by any man.
 
But this practice was originally started by Prophet
 
Mohammed (peace be upon him) 1400 years ago on ALLAH's command to protect the dignity of Women.
 In a nut-shell, every Muslim woman is considered as 'QUEEN'.

Here's a link to an article about it and it even has a video showing not only the Queen but also several other ladies (princesses? wives of nobelmen? IDK) behind them also fully covered.

It also appears here with the following caption (it's towards the bottom of the page).

Mourning in Vienna

The Blessed Emperor Charles at the funeral of the late Emperor Franz Joseph, the saint’s great uncle, in November 1916. Between the Blessed Charles and his Empress, Zita of Bourbon-Parma, is Crown Prince Otto. Otto lives today, and is the head of the Hapsburg family.

A google search for the funeral of emperor franz joseph returns this same image many times as well as several videos showing the procession so I'm pretty sure it's not a fabrication but I think it's important to remember this wasn't just presenting his wife to the people this was a funeral procession.  Searching for Empress Zita returns many pictures of her uncovered including several in public.  I wouldn't read too much into it but we know that Chrisitans and Jews of the past also covered their hair.  It's only in modern times that they do not.
