An hijab and six inches heels walk into the Palace.

Well, that is a sight for any photo
caption competition. Muslim women tend to dress rather modestly and shuffle around in plain flat shoes. Many wear a hijab to cover their hair and these women go unnoticed as they go about their daily business. But Hayrunnisa Gul, wife of Turkey’s president is a little different. Hayrunnisa was wearing her trademark headscarf - an item of clothing which angers secularists in Turkey who see it as an overt Islamic symbol. Nothing unusual there but her six-inch platform shoes were a BIG surprise!

It certainly looks very different to see six-inch platform shoes and an hijab together on the one woman. This is a refreshing image and I am sure that comedians will be getting some fun out of this display later this week. Jokes about spikes and kebabs or the high difference between our Queen and Hayrunnisa.
