Visiting court -- where does one leave their belongings?
When women visited court in, let's say, winter or fall, and the women were wearing heavy clothes/robes and hats/scarves to shield themselves from the cold, where would they leave their belongings? Surely, they wouldn't leave them somewhere at court if they were just visitors. Did they leave them in the hands of the guards or courtiers?
Today, there's always the hat/coat rack and such where one can leave their belongings if they're out at a social event or dinner or something.
How was it done in the Tudor era?
Thanks for any responses.

Royal Court vs The Corporate World
I've often considered the competitive world of big business to be the modern equiavlent of royal courts in some ways. Granted that there are no physical executions in the corporate world ( as far as anyone knows), much of the same ruthlessness that courtiers used when jockeying for the King's favor are still used by corporate workers now. Any thoughts on this?
