That's quite an example of Mary's contemptuous big B face.

How do they, WWF, reconcile her regularly wearing fur?

Other instances can rightly be criticized but not this instance for which she drew intense criticism for wearing seal fur to Greenland.

But Crown Princess Mary has made at least one major fashion faux pas, according to PETA Australia. On a recent trip to Greenland the Australian-born royal wore a coat featuring seal skin, prompting a backlash from the animal rights group.

Greenlandic seal are supplied by the Inuit of Greenland. This is the only type of seal skin allowed to be traded in the EU. The Inuit are an indigenous people, who have been living by sustainable hunting for years. Seals have been used for food and clothes ever since Greenland and the Arctic were inhabited by people. The main reason the Inuit go hunting is to provide food. Eating seal is customary in Greenland and no part of an animal goes to waste. The family eats the good meat, the sledge dogs the intestines and the skin is either used for clothes for the family or handed in at trading posts.

Incidentally, at least two of the founding members of the WWF were hunters who saw the benefits of supporting conservation.

Wow, I did not know that about hunters and WWF. I did know about hunters also being conservationists for many, many decades. Teddy Roosevelt was one and he founded the National Park Service here. I'm not a fan of hunting, but. . . . and certainly not of endangered animals, but  . . . I do see a point of hunters also being conservationists. I have probably 30 relatives in Alaska and they all hunt and fish. They are also very gun safety conscious and when Columbine happened, the younger ones were like, "Why would anyone take a gun to school? You only want it out in the woods." They were confused because every kid in that school was familiar with firearms in a hunting scenario and no one would think about bringing one to school. But this was the 90s and it's Alaska, so who knows now?  In summer, no one goes salmon fishing without a gun around there. To my knowledge, no cousin ever shot a bear or needed to.

Her staff should research any and all pitfalls in her visits and ward robe and she should then LISTEN to their briefs.

And those close ups  Yikes her skin looks like it is made of pizza dough

The fact that she uses fur as a fashion/status statement negates any excuses for her wearing it (gifted, showing support of...) IMO
