“From 2019 onwards, fake fur will be used to make sure she stays warm.”
The Queen will go fur-free for the first time, according to her official dresser, Angela Kelly.
Whilst the Queen has a plethora of famous fur coats and cloaks for official duties, she has apparently decided to stop wearing the ‘cruel’ product.
In her new memoir, Angela Kelly writes: “If Her Majesty is due to attend an engagement in particularly cold weather, from 2019 onwards, fake fur will be used to make sure she stays warm”.
It is not yet known whether this rule extends to the official outfits she’ll wear for state occasions (she has several historic fur items in her wardrobe), but it’s certainly a bold new step in the right direction.
Speaking about the decision, PETA Director of International Programmes, Mimi Bekhechi, said: “PETA staff are raising a glass of gin and Dubonnet to the Queen’s compassionate decision to go fur-free. This new policy is a sign of the times, as 95% of the British public also refuses to wear real fur.”
