The Queen has been criticised for wearing a fur coat to attend a Christmas Day mass in Sandringham.
Queen Elizabeth II was pictured wearing a brown fur coat as she stepped out of her car for the service, before changing into a red coat with a grey fur trim.
The 89-year-old has been seen in the coat on various occasions since as far back as 1961, according to Sky News. A number of people commented on her decision to wear the coat again on social media.

@SkyNews I love the royals but have to say very disappointed. Not like the Queen to get it so wrong. Fur only looks good on animals.— Pussin Boots (@boots_pussin) December 25, 2015

The Queen was criticised for wearing it in 2013 by the animal rights charity Peta, who said in a statement at the time: "How can Queen Elizabeth not yet have learned what's right and wrong and abandoned fur, the product of immense suffering.
