The Queen’s look of horror at Turkish first lady’s footwear

The Queen's look of horror at Turkish first lady's footwear ( 23 November 2011) One always hopes one’s guests will be comfortable. But sometimes they don’t do themselves any favours. 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. 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.

A source from the Queen’s Sandringham estate revealed Sadie, 35, had become overworked, and the prospect of moving with the Prince to Kensington Palace was the final straw. The source said: “Sadie’s a hard worker but the job’s demands got too much, even for her. “They wanted her to spend more time at Kensington Palace and her work was increasing all the time. “She wasn’t having a normal life outside work.
