Queen orders Kate Middleton to wear longer skirts
News 96.5 ^ | February 4, 2014

Posted on 02/04/2014 6:33:37 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

LONDON — Fashion icon Kate Middleton won’t be having anymore wardrobe malfunctions if Queen Elizabeth has her way.

According to The Mail on Sunday, the queen has ordered the Duchess of Cambridge to wear lower hemlines during a 3½-week trip to Australia this spring.

The royal makeover won’t just focus on toning down Kate’s leggy style. The duchess also will wear more tiaras and statement jewelry “favored by the Queen and Queen Mother,” the Mail reported.

Unfortunately, the pics are from Getty Images, and you have to go to the article to see. I see the Queen’s point, in not wanting a bunch of those pics floating around.

Kate knew what she was signing up for. I suspect she has enough style to look impressive even if the skirts are longer and she’s wearing a tiara.

I am glad this article was posted. It reminded me how little I care about the queen and her entire inbred clan. Isn’t it about time for a replay of Di’s funeral?

Some of those pics are from several years ago. Why complain now?

I doubt that any such directive was given, and I doubt Kate changes her style much.

She dresses well, she seems like a great person, and she has nice legs.

Just because a few creepy paparazzi like to stage such photos on windy days, it’s no reason to blame Kate.

This is not without precedent. King George V (Queen Elizabeth’s grandfather) ordered the Labor government’s members — including the Prime Minister — not to attend court unless dressed in appropriate day-formal wear. They were required to wear black ties and a jacket or the King would refuse to receive them.

I’m hoping the Duchess of Cambridge will take these sartorial rules with her usual modesty and accede to the Queen’s authority on such matters.

Those bikinis will probably become a thing of the past too. But after the baby, maybe it will be a relief not to have to be bikini perfect for the vicious tabloid press. Still, it will be tough to visit Australia in what is probably late summer and not go native like an Aussie.
I would hate having a frumpy grandmother in law telling me how to dress, but it takes the focus off Harry
Tiaras aren’t necessarily classy. Courteney Love wore one. Honey BooBoo probably does too.

I read the original article at DailyMail a couple of days ago. It said nothng about the Queen “ordering” her.

The Royal Family takes its duties seriously, calling itself “the Firm.” I’m sure they have all kinds of dress guidelines for various stages of life. Now that Kate is a mother, the short skirts have to go, but I seriously doubt Kate needed to be “ordered” — she is not a rebel like Fergie or Camilla.

British women subjects are also required to wear stockings and closed-toe shoes for an audience with the Queen. This is a requirement of many American corporations, as well. Noted that Michelle Obama, when she met the Queen, went with the bare-leg Hollywood look and also broke protocol by trying to hug the Queen, whose manners were too impeccable to show disapproval publicly.

I remember gasping when I saw that. In my mind, Michelle Obama wasn't ignorant of proper protocol, it was that she viewed herself as an equal to the Queen.

All the Royal Family did was save Europe back in the 1940’s, bring the US into the war against Hitler, and then help rebuild Europe after it was over.

They also helped pull our heads from our posteriors on wartime intelligence, passed vital technology on (radar), and then helped defeat the Russians in the Cold War.

But hey, its just the Royal Family. I might also add that the Queen knows full well what a git his oldest boy is and kept the job longer than she wanted to spare the world, and her own conscience, the indignity of a King Charles.

No royal family, no Churchill. No Churchill, and you might be speaking a different language.

For all the grief the French take for their collapse in WWII, I don’t think anybody living today can appreciate the toll WWI took on the French.

In 1938, the French were considered the best professional army in the world. WWI shattered the French. Were it not for the British Expeditionary Forces in France, it would have taken the Germans five weeks to fold instead of nine.

I read a biography on Churchill that really brought home to me how WWI affected the French. By 1938, the average Frenchman just wanted to be French and live in the French way, and didn’t really think German rule would change the day to day for the average Frenchman. If freedom meant another WWI, they were willing to try occupation.

Once the Queen dies it will be up to the Princes, because Charles is understood to be an idiot by everyone. He’s worse than Joe Biden, if that’s possible.

One more thing the Royal Family taught the US: Fighting our wars on anybody else’s soil beside your own is infinitely better than the alternatives.

This is what is so frustrating about moving away from the doctrine of two-theater wartime preparedness.

I guess the West Coast is expendable, or the East Coast, or more likely the South.

I don’t assume it. I studied it.

It was the Royal Family that first forged the ‘Special Relationship’. It’s took Obama five minutes to scuttle 60 plus years of hard work there.

I’m saying that in the absence of CULTURAL LEADERSHIP, Europe would have collapsed. The Royal Family’s sole responsibility in their Constitutional Monarchy is just this.

Churchill was one of the ONLY people in Parliament that understood WWII to be a CULTURAL battle, and that France had surrendered PRIOR to Germany invading it.

Again, without the Royal Family - no Churchill. He was not a popular politician - at all - until Germany invaded Norway. Why do you think Chamberlain even had a chance to negotiate with Hitler in the first place?

AGAINST the advice of the Royal Family, Chamberlain was sent to try to make a deal. “Peace in our day.”

It’s not like the Brits came out of WWI psychically unscathed. When they started talking about ‘The War to End All Wars’, they meant it, given that in the history of European war, WWI was, well, shattering to all involved.
