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

Other instances can rightly be criticized but not this instance for which she drew intense criticism for wearing seal fur to Greenland.
Quote
https://www.dailymail.co....aring-seal-skin-coat.html
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.

Quote
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

I suspect hunters can make such good conservationists because they see firsthand how wildlife live and interact. They see what over-hunting can do firsthand, and they can also see when and how population control may be useful as well. It's also a fact that various animal populations do ebb and flow and it's not always possible to tell what's the natural or best balance. One of my college roommates was an entomology major, and she talked about how various bug populations would balance each other. One year something would explode ("It's a bad year for mosquitos") and then a predator population would balloon in response to the greater food supply. It's fascinating.

Mosh attended an event of the WWF World Wide Fund for Nature at Kattegat Center in Grenå.
Pictures, look here:

Yeas, Mosh, you're totally into protecting animals - not, wearing fur on several occasions and traveling to China to attend a fashion show with fur.... No

Fur aside, she looks botoxed and beautifully attired. I would wear that skirt in a heartbeat.

I agree. It’s a great outfit and very flattering. And she looks so botoxed, I’m surprised, she can move her face

Today, Yrma was criticized in the news for shaking the hand of the WWF Fund for Nature’s Secretary General during her event yesterday.









She posted a message about this on the Court’s instagram today:

"On land, at sea and in the air - we have to get used to wearing sanitary napkins (masks). It is important that we follow the recommendations of the health authorities together. ⁣

⁣Yesterday I was in Grenaa for my first official visit after the summer holidays. At sea and in the air it went fine, but on land I slipped and I unfortunately came to shake hands. It reminded me how important it is that we help each other live up to the recommendations. Take care of yourself, and take care of each other."

She owned her mistake. Aside from not making it, she couldn't have handled it better.

Welcome,Lady of the Lake!  Masks are not easy to wear. In one of the close-ups  her eyes look odd, the way they do when you try to make them look larger and wrinkle-less : you look scared or shocked.  I understand her forgetting about greetings; we’ve been isolated for so long that we tend  and wish to get back to normal.
