With winter approaching it will be fascinating to see which Royal ladies are wrapping up in fur. It looks so elegant and regal.

You will see the Scandinavian Royals in Fur.

I understand why some do not like fur or are against it. But I am not one of them. I support the wearing of fur etc. The only thing I don't like is when people push their opinions on others calling them uneducated etc. for wearing fur. I also don't like people using violence to stop fur trade. This IS NOT directed at anyone in particular, I just have seen so many posts about people being angry, upset or disappointed for someone who wears fur. Or calling them uneducated.

I think if you can afford it, wear it. If you like it, wear it. If you don't like it, don 't wear or buy it. That's all I'm trying to say. For royals as well.

I think for royal fashion purpose, it can sometimes make you look fat.

I dont care to get into a political debate regarding animal fur. However, I personally like use of fur on garments in the cuff and collar area, or as trim edging. QBea wears those wonderful wool ponchos with fur trim. Maxima has worn one like this once. If I lived in these countries, fur would be my first choice for warmth, and style.

Additionally, surprised no one has mentioned the historical use of fur on corination robes or diems yet. If someone has pics, please post.

The fur is very good, the lenth of it is quite practical, the colour is classic as it's usually used for furs.
I think Queen's choice is modern.

If you get the right fur coat/jacket it can look quite elegent.
Many royals dont seem to always buy new fur coat, they tend to but a very classic piece/s and use it for a while.

Queen Beatrix and furs

Now I don't know where she heard it.
But a long, long time ago, my mother told me that Queen Beatrix never wears real furs. I was quite young then, so I have no idea where she got the information or even how the topic came up.
Does anyone know anything about it?

Wow, THAT is really interesting, and surprising. The photos certainly look like real fur, but her Majesty Bea could buy the best fakes on the market, yes?

Princess Grace looks gorgeous and charming in fur.
Oh, well...what wouldn't she look good in....

Anyone in their right mind won't condone animal cruelty and that's what the animal rights activists are trying to let the world know, but "Fur" business is a multi-million dollar business, so as long as it's making money fur will continue to be the source of revenue for such business.

Oh, Yeo-wang, each your word, concerning Princess Grace's appearance is true.
She looked beautiful in everything!
