After several brands have changed their positions , it is Queen Elizabeth II's turn to announce that she will no longer wear fur coats. According to her official assistant Angela Kelly , the queen has a plethora of famous fur coats and cloaks for official duties, she has decided to stop using the 'cruel' origin product.
In her new memoir, Angela wrote that "if Her Majesty is to engage in a particularly cold weather engagement from 2019 onwards, fake fur will be used to ensure she gets hot."
It is not yet known whether this rule extends to the official clothes she will wear for state occasions (she has several historical fur items in her wardrobe), but it is certainly a bold new step in the right direction.
Speaking of the ruling, PETA International Programs Director Mimi Bekhti said, "PETA officials are raising a glass of gin and Dubonnet to the queen's compassionate decision to be fur free. This new policy is a sign of the times. 95% of the British public also refuses to wear fur ".
