In the past couple of weeks we’ve gotten some marvelous revelations about the reigning monarch of England, Queen Elizabeth II.

First, we got the news that she actually has a paid flunky (that’s the flunky’s word, not mine-btw), to break in her shoes for her so that they are comfortable when they finally grace the royal feet.

Now there’s this, Queen Elizabeth will no longer wear real fur in her outfits.

WHAT?!

Has there ever been a royal robe without fur in life or fiction?  How could this possibly be?  Check out the royal robe from her coronation above.  Note the fur lined robe?

Well, don’t get too excited.  While news of the wardrobe shift was confirmed by Buckingham Palace, and they wanted to make it known that while she will make the change for future outfits, she won’t be giving up fur completely.

While fur has been an integral part of royal attire for years, but the switch reflects the change in the public’s thought about fur.

Geez…what’s next?  I mean, now can we expect her to let her grandson marry a “colonist?” <g>
