I personally wouldn't wear fur, but those coats do look warm.

Real fur is incredibly warm. But John Lewis's sell massive faux fur pelts for about £80 a shot which make perfectly good bedspreads so faux can be as warm as real. As long as it's sewn to silk and not that awful scratchy lining they tend to use with faux.

I agree totally with you, this isn't fair.
Royals must be more simple.

The human species is a predator and I have no problem with that. I wear leather and eat meat and wear fur.

Actually most people probably eat larger quantities of some animals than I wear with fur. Popcorn shrimp is a favorite and you can eat 20-30 at one sitting. If you like quail which are small birds and you eat them quite often, its quite easy to eat more quail in one winter than the number of fur pelts in a coat.

I guess if the royals are okay with killing a bear or a baby seal for the sake a of a coat then I shouldn't care. I personally don't eat meat so it's only natural I don't wear fur either. I just think with having a reputation and persona to live up to, that royal heads of state shouldn't get too extravagant with things like fur coats.

I love a fur coat - but somehow, it just doesn't go with the fashion stakes in sunny tropical Singapore!!!

But like in the Scandanavian countries in winter, fur is needed imo, it just gets to cold. Royals do lead by example, but at the end you have a choice to wear what you want imo. I think fur is beautiful & yes i know it cruiel, but i think sometimes we need it, sad? I know

I like when royals are wearing furs unless they are from an dangered species. Me personally would only use fake furs.

Why is it that people find it perfectly acceptable to wear leather, and wax lyrical about beautiful boots and shoes, but object to fur?

I haven't had the time to read the whole thread, but here goes:
I am very much against the wearing of real fur - the thought sickens me. I have a full-length racoon coat - beautiful thing - but I cannot bear to wear it. I bought it many years ago before I had the sense to become anti-fur. It now just sits in the closet. And I have become almost vegan also - only eat chicken, turkey and fish.
I now have many accessory pieces - scarves, hats, etc - made of faux fur and they look amazing. Now days, faux fur has so improved and looks so real.
That is the way to go!

IMO there is no excuse for wearing fur. You can be beautiful dressing your own skin and not at the expense of other living creatures, because it's common knowledge that it takes more than one mink to make a coat.

Oh Lilla that was a very informative post regarding the story behind the seal coats. I have seen a lot of royals wearing fur coats but I do not recall seeing Mary in one. Does Mary own a fur coat? Not that it matters, I am just curious.
I love the luxury of a good fur!!!!!! oops

I believe Mary was given a fur as a wedding gift.

But if I were I would be given lavish gifts. In real life I have to burn the AMEX statement as soon as I pay it since I do not want any reminders!!!

I think CP Mary buying fur vest for her baby is not a big deal. Of course if it is real fur vest. 'common, she is a person with money, it doesn't matter whether own or taxpayers now, so if she can afford outfit for say $700 why not. Regular folks like we may afford buying fake fur vast for say $30, but if we had money to buy something for couple hundred dollars, wouldn't we? I would.
