While the former Smiths singer doesn't want to think negatively of the Queen of England, he believes she should be aware of how her security team gets those hats. "It is difficult not to look to the Queen herself -- after all, they are her Guards, and she must surely be aware of the horrific process utilised to supply real bearskins for her Guards," he wrote. "The mere sight of each bearskin hat must surely jab at the Queen's heart."
Morrissey ends the letter on a sour note saying, "The Guards wearing real fur reflects the human spirit at its lowest."
