Yikes, royal drama between Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton – again. Despite everyone’s efforts to make it seem like Queen Elizabeth disapproves of Kate, by and large, sources say that the Queen’s approved of Kate’s conduct during her Australia and New Zealand tour. However, you know what the Queen doesn’t approve of? Kate’s short skirts!
Obviously, Queen Elizabeth is 88 years old and she expects a modicum of class and effort from every member of her immediate family. And even if miniskirts are in vogue in today’s fashion obsessed media, are they appropriate for the Duchess to wear – especially when she keeps having near-misses with her wardrobe malfunctions?
Anyway, it turns out that miniskirts actually WAS a topic of discussion between the Queen and Kate. Katie Nicholl, a writer who has plenty of sources in the royal camp [specifically, the Middleton camp] has written an extensive overview of the royals’ tour down under, and she’s revealed some interesting tidbits. Apparently, the palace was very focused on making sure that Kate stopped flashing her underwear everywhere she went, and that she didn’t have a wardrobe malfunction while on the tour – after a very close miss on the first day.
Apparently, the Queen herself told Kate that she needed to stop wearing short skirts and miniskirts and start wearing ‘refined, longer pencil skirts’. Damn, the Queen is not happy with Kate’s wardrobe, is she? But wait, that’s not all. Apparently, the Queen also ordered Kate to chop off more than four inches from her hair, because her long hair was ‘drowning her’. Poor Kate – always having to acquiesce to every request to modify her appearance as the Queen and the royals see fit. Well, she knew what she was signing up for, so I don’t really feel sorry for her.
What do you guys think about the Queen’s demands? Are they reasonable, or do you think the Queen should be more accommodating to Kate’s wishes? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
