The Duchess Of Cambridge has found herself in the middle for a fur battle following accusations that she was wearing fur earlier this month.
Kate was pictured wearing a coat that actually was lined with fake fur, and now because of it the 30-year-old is at the centre of a fight between animal rights bosses and a former politician.
Kate couldn't possibly be a fur-lover, could she?
Despite Kate wearing fake fur, the picture was used by the International Fur Trade Federation and was used on its official Facebook page with the caption that the Duchess was wearing a "classy fur-lined coat".
Now PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have waded in, insisting that the fur was synthetic and have set a letter to the Iftf boss Mark Oaten, who actually quit as an MP in 2006 over an embarrassing rent boy scandal.
PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk threatened to seek legal action if they did not remove the image from Facebook and wrote: "The Duchess' office has confirmed in a letter to Peta that 'Her Royal Highness was not wearing fur. The coat was not lined with fur'. We therefore insist that you remove the photo from your social media page and issue an immediate public retraction of your claim."
The letter also read: "To state that the Duchess is wearing fur is not only false but offensive... To portray the new Duchess wearing something so blatantly cruel and contrary to her country's values is insulting."
