Hijab and the Queen

Thanks to our lovely friend Iman, we recently saw the most amazing picture of Queen Elizabeth wearing Hijab.

I wonder what brand she wears? :-) Burberry, Hermes? Nah, it looks more like Salvatore Feragamo.

Ok, I know some of you are saying "this is not Hijab". Lot's of women in Manhattan also walk around wearing scarves like this.

I know you're saying, "Audrey Hepburn wore it too, so did Grace Kelly". But seriously, did you know that if the Queen dressed exactly as seen in this picture, and tried entering a university in one of the countries where there is a hijab ban (don't need to mention the country's name, you all know which one comes first) that she would not be allowed in! She could not go meet the President of that particular country in a governmental building because this is considered hijab.

Since the Queen is a very powerful woman, and can make anything happen, I so wish she would go to one of those countries (Turkey cough* cough*) and try to go through the doors of a university, or a governmental building. It would be so much fun to see if they would bend the rules for her.

I know, it's wishfull thinking! But a girl can dream, can't she?

  1. Every time you mention that Turkey bans women who wear hijab from entering university, it literally boggles my mind. I was under the impression that turkey is predominantly an Islamic/Muslim nation. So it truly is strange.

    PS. The Queen looks so CUTE!!
