All Eyes on the New Princess

Over 2 billion people watched the Royal Wedding; likely you did too. If you didn’t watch it, it would still be hard to miss the cover of every magazine in the grocery store. Photos and video of the Royal Wedding are everywhere.

While every detail of the Royal Wedding has been dragged out, there are some things that you might not know. Take for instance Kate’s beautiful dress.

She looked gorgeous, absolutely stunning. Reports indicated that the dress was made by Sarah Burton of the design house Alexander McQueen. (Photo of Sarah Burton below).

This photo of wedding dress designer, Sarah Burton, was taken outside the Goring Hotel, where Kate Middleton was staying the night before her wedding day. As you can imagine, we are not too thrilled with Sarah’s choice of furry-hooded jackets.

Also worth mentioning: the design house that Sarah represents, Alexander McQueen, is a huge proponent of fur. McQueen has used lots of real fur in his collections over the years. Tsk, tsk. (Personally, we would have loved to have seen animal-lover and fur-free designer Stella McCartney dress the Princess for her big day.)

So does this mean Kate, Dutchess of Cambridge, and future Queen, is pro-fur? It would seem that way for now.

Above: This photo of Kate was taken in 2007. There are photos also circulating on the web of Kate’s mother, Carole Middleton, wearing a a similar furry hat. Fur shame.

Oh, and here is another photo of Kate, alongside the Prince, wearing that same silly fur hat, but this time she’s shooting/killing pheasants. (Sigh).

So at this time, all eyes are on the Princess and what her fashion choices will like be in the coming years. But right now, one thing is definitely clear: all of the training and advice she received on “how to be a proper princess” sadly never included “how to be kind to animals.”
