Of course Queen Elizabeth wouldn’t like short skirts, especially if they’re worn by the wife of the future King of England, and mother to the heir. Kate Middleton‘s trying her best to be as modern as possible, following in the footsteps of her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. Unfortunately for her, the Queen’s not happy with her fashion, and has passed a royal decree about her dress code for their upcoming tour in Australia.
Prince William and Prince George, along with Kate, will be going along for this Australia tour – but for Kate, there is a royal dictum that’s been passed by the Queen on how she should dress. And guess what? It includes longer skirts and dresses, and lots of royal jewels. Basically, the Queen is gearing up and telling Kate to dress more like a ‘royal’, in her opinion.
Apparently, the royal wardrobe for this tour will include ‘couture daytime dresses with lower hemlines’ than she’s usually seen in. She will also be ‘encouraged to wear the tiaras favored by the Queen and Queen Mother and statement jewelry and gemstones from the Queen’s personal collection.’
Basically, they’re trying to make Kate appear ‘more royal than ever’, although I’m not sure how longer skirts are supposed to do the trick. This is no longer the first half of the 1900s, and short skirts are considered a normal part of a 30-something woman’s wardrobe, even if that woman is the Duchess of Cambridge. By making her appear stuffy and giving her an even stuffier wardrobe, the Queen’s only going to alienate her from the public. I mean, it’s not like Kate’s wardrobe is even all that sexy to begin with, especially recently. It seems like all she does is wear suits and Jenny Packham dresses, and most of them wouldn’t be considered ‘short’.
