As the Queen greeted the first lady of Turkey yesterday, she couldn’t help an admonishing glance at her guest’s six-inch platform shoes.


You might find the stairs tricky, my dear: Queen's astonishment as Turkish President's wife turns up at the Palace in a pair of killer heels




One always hopes one’s guests will be comfortable. But sometimes they don’t do themselves any favours.


Hayrunnisa Gul, wife of Turkey’s president, tottered gingerly on to the red carpet as she and her husband arrived for lunch at Buckingham Palace. The Queen, in her usual sensible court shoes, appeared somewhat taken aback by her glamorous guest’s footwear.



Maybe she was worried about Mrs Gul tripping up on the carpet. Or fretting how she would manage all the stairs in the palace, which has few lifts. No matter. Mrs Gul is something of a stilleto expert. In September she braved the cobbles at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate in five-inch heels and October saw her treading carefully in six-inch platforms at the presidential palace in Ankara.

Despite a rather wobbly beginning, she put her best foot forward and enjoyed the best of royal hospitality at the palace. After lunch the Queen treated the Guls to an exhibition of Turkish themed antiquities.

The President of Turkey and his wife were welcomed to Britain amid great pomp and pageantry.

Abdullah Gul's three-day state visit began with a ceremonial greeting under grey, overcast skies on Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall.

The two heads of state shook hands warmly in a physical and symbolic gesture of friendship between Turkey and Britain. But Mrs Gul's footwear appeared to initially go unnoticed.

The Queen wore a smarksilver and white wool dress and matching coat by Angela Kelly. Her black patent shoes and bag were much plainer than the accessories Mrs Gul chose.

As well as her impressive boots, the President's wife was wearing her trademark headscarf - an item of clothing which angers secularists in Turkey who see it as an overt Islamic symbol.

I can not comment about this sense but for now, ( in daily life) 'The concept of modesty'  known by very few people. That is to say many people are not aware of this concept. Forwhy still there are people who do not know how to talk to a woman.
