The UK’s Evolving Rules On Turbans
In modern Britain, the rules related to turban-wearing have continued to evolve.
Earlier this month, members of the Coldstream Guards marched through London for the Trooping of the Colour to mark Queen Elizabeth’s 92nd birthday. It is a ceremony that has marked the official birthday of Britain’s sovereign for over 260 years. This time, the ceremony was significant for another reason. For the first time, one of the guards wore a turban bearing the ceremonial cap star. The British media lauded the event’s “historic significance”.
