Fur on Royals

I've got lots of photographs of Queen Beatrix and Queen Margrethe in fur, however, Queen Elizabeth (and the British Royal Family for that matter) seem to avoid it. It's not so cold here I suppose but the Queen used to wear it and I believe the Countess of Wessex was criticised for wearing fur in Russia.

Do you like Royal Ladies wearing fur and lets post some pics of them in their finest furs!

I don't think it is anybody's business if the royals (and commoners alike) wear fur. I think this whole idea that real fur is wrong is crass and a waste of time away from real issues that ppl outta be concerned about.

I was directing my opinion at you. I am mainly talking about ppl who a confrontational about fur (pink, etc.). That makes me sick.

I am against wearing fur, but I think it's a personal decision. I believe if someone decides to wear fur and they are comfortable with that decision, then that is their business.

As for the royals, I don't mind seeing the older generation (like Queen Elizabeth and Queen Beatrix) wear their furs. Way back, when they first started wearing furs, people weren't so concerned about animal welfare. The older generation has been wearing fur for so long, I think it would be very difficult for them to change this habit.

However, the younger generation were brought up in a time of more social awareness. I must admit, that as young, modern role models, I would be disappointed to see them wearing fur.

Here is a picture of Queen Elizabeth wearing fur in Canada, May 2005

Gee calm down everybody! So some you like fur, great. And some of you don't, that's great too. Not everyone who wears fur thinks everybody else should, and not everyone who doesn't wear it thinks everybody else should not wear it.

Oh that weird fur thing the Queen had on her shoulder. I didn't like it at all. I know that it can be cold in Canada but not that cold in May.

I'm neither pro-fur or anti-fur. It all depends HOW (a coat not a silly thing like in the picture), WHEN (ok in winter) and WHERE (ok in countries with real cold winters where central heating system is a must such as Canada, Norway, Sweden, etc; never ok in warm Monaco or Malibu).

Yes there is also nice faux fur and also nice recycled fur.

I was caught in a blizzard in Canada right around the middle of May, about 1969.

Not every body's temperature system is the same..some people feel cold quickly...others feel they are sweating...Besides the queen is an old lady...needs to keep herself warm

I love fur and believe it to be the height of glamour and elegance. On a recent visit to the UK Mette Marit looked divine in a short mink cape/coat.
I will defend anybodies right to wear fur as I did when the Countess of Wessex was criticised for a rabbit fur hat.

Oh May 1970. It was not a blinding snowstorm around Montreal but still snow from a winter that was refusing to let go. I had a new baby brother at the time. It was May 2nd to be exact and I remember walking back to school at lunchtime that day and thinking that getting snow in May was so but so unfair and that maybe this year we would not have a summer at all. I was very saddened by that. When Spring is particularly chilly, I still have the fear that God would forget to send summer to Canada. This memory is still vivid and makes me smile.

Back to the Queen weird fur thing -> too big, too shiny, too too much for that visit. Hey if you need fur to keep warm, then cover your arms, Royal or not!

Yes, it was a very cold and snowy day in the area of Winnepeg. I remember that we had gone camping because they were celebrating Queen Victoria's birthday. We had a small pop-up camper trailer. When we woke up, there must have been at least 18 inches of snow. My mother refused to go outside and cook in the snow, so we went home! I was about 6 at the time.

I remember that when Prince Laurent married Claire, he actually asked everybody not to wear fur at the wedding. Only Queen Fabiola showed up that day wearing fur.
