Heart on sleeve

Newfoundland’s Lieutenant-Governor makes subtle point during royal visit.

. . . a move that could spark new controversy among Europeans already upset over a rabbit stole sported earlier by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Prince Charles and his wife are in Newfoundland as part of an 11-day royal tour, the first official visit by Camilla. They fly to Toronto later today, but they had a series of events to attend before departing. The first was the planting of two oak trees at Government House, where they were welcomed by Mr. Crosbie wearing his sealskin coat.

Mr. Crosbie swapped it for a sombre blue overcoat by the next event, but photos of the sealskin garment will likely be a sore point with those who see the hunt as an antiquated and barbaric ritual.
