REALLY, Eddie_uk?  "Nothing better to do" indeed.  With modern technology faux fur can be created that is almost identical to the real thing, cheaper and does not result in the senseless slaughter and torture of animals.  I think that the Queen should set the example in this area.  Wearing fur is just an outdated notion that, unfortunately, is perpetuated by ignorance and/or an undeveloped social consciousness of right and wrong.

really?? I can't imagine the crown and other reglia without the ermine brimming. why not also change the diamonds into faux stones on course of the sometimes horrible conditions they were found.
the Queen of Denmark wore some larger furs than HM did.

Oh, get OVER yourself. SORRY for expressing an opinion.

Firstly it is either vintage fur or faux fur, according to the Daily Mail, and secondly there are millions of rabbits & foxs who's numbers need to be controlled (I don't see you sparing a though for the poor Farmers, very selfish of you IMO) what's wrong with making use of the fur???

It really is a pity that people like you don't channel your strong opinions into something worth while, the world would be a much better place if you did. End off.

I've added some info on the proud Papa's thread.  :)

Regarding EII, Sky News reports that she is the first British great-grand monarch since the reign of Queen Victoria (the late Earl Mountbatten being her last-born great-grandchild during her lifetime, I believe?) more than 100 years ago. Congrats!

It would be wonderful to see a photo of QE, Princess Royal, Mrs Phillips and the new born, reminiscent of the QV, Princess Beatrice, Victoria & Alice photograph!
