Give up the fluff

What started as a series of designer brands going fur-free has not extended into wardrobes of celebrities, including Queen Elizabeth II.

Following the likes of Net-A-Porter, Gucci, Michael Kors and Chanel banning fluffy creatures from their collections, from now on the British monarch will be keeping warm in faux fur.

This was revealed in a memoir by Angela Kelly, personal advisor and senior dresser to the Queen for over 25 years, who wrote ‘If Her Majesty is due to attend an engagement in particularly cold weather, from 2019 onwards fake fur will be used to make sure she stays warm.’

The Queens wardrobe had to go through some editing as mink trims have to be removed from some of her favourite coats, leaving only the ceremonial robes made with fur untouched for Royal duties.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace confirmed this news, and told The Telegraph newspaper that if any ‘new outfits are designed for the Queen, any fur used will be fake.’

This will go down well with the British public as, according to PETA, 95 percent of them refuse to wear real fur.
