Angela Kelly, Queen Elizabeth II's personal dresser has said that the Queen will no longer be wearing real fur. “Fake fur will be used to make sure she stays warm,” she continued.
Queen Elizabeth, ever the progressive monarch, has decided to end the use of real fur as it came to her own personal and professional wardrobe. All of her outfits that have included fur in the past are being redone or have already been updated. The world learned of this through Angela Kelly's book, The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, the Dresser and the Wardrobe.
The palace has confirmed the switch but did mention that historic robes that are used for ceremonies are still fur-trimmed and will not be changed. At least her majesty's wardrobe will be 90% fur-free then. Kelly has also stated that several pieces have already been updated, such as a mink fur coat that is now fake fur.
This may not seem like much, but for a royal to take a stand such as this one, it is only a matter of time before the rest of the royal family follows suit. Due to the fact that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, to name a couple royal women, are such influencers when it comes to their fashion, should they make that switch as well it is sure to make an impact on the rest of the public and fashion world.
