Kate Middleton Caught In The Middle Of PETA Anti-Fur Battle
Kate Middleton is a fancy lady! As much as the Duchess of Cambridge plays the normal person card, she’s still a royal, which is why we’re kind of surprised to learn she doesn’t wear fur.
She was recently photographed in a fake fur-lined coat, which the International Fur Trade Federation mistook for a coat with real fur lining. The IFTF posted a picture of Kate in the jacket on its website, which pissed off PETA. PETA got in touch with Duchess Catherine’s people, who sent a letter explaining the following:
Her Royal Highness was not wearing fur. The coat was not lined with fur. We therefore insist that you remove the photo from your social media page and issue an immediate public retraction of your claim. To state that the Duchess is wearing fur is not only false but offensive…to portray the new Duchess wearing something so blatantly cruel and contrary to her country’s values is insulting.
But is it really contrary to her country’s values? The royal family hunts for sport! But, while Kate has indeed gone hunting with Prince William and co. in the past, she has apparently decided to forgo any such activities anymore.
