“The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, the Dresser and the Wardrobe.”
Prada, Versace and Coach have opted to stop using real fur in their collections.
Buckingham Palace, in a statement issued to media outlets based in the United Kingdom, confirmed the report — but with a caveat. It pointed out that the queen won’t be ridding her wardrobe of ceremonial robes and other official garments that are lined with fur, and that she could still wear them on occasion.
Humane groups commended the queen for her fashion choice, saying it reflected the mood of the British public toward the use of real fur.
“Our Head of State going fur-free sends a powerful message that fur is firmly out of fashion and does not belong with Brand Britain,” Claire Bass, executive director of Humane Society Internationals U.K. division, said in a statement.
