I LOVE this. I have always been a fan of the Royal Family. And love how they always wear hats in public (or even a bandana in a very casual context). The ladies of the royal family are always covered as a great example to us. And they ask us to cover for an audience or even a royal wedding.

This reminds me of a editorial I had read ages ago: “If temporal monarchs are to be served with an uncovered head as a mark
of reverence and humility, that doesn’t the Supreme God deserved to be
served with an uncovered head as well? …this uncouth taste of being hatted prevails in almost all the churches in
town and country; matrons of sixty adopting the thoughtless whim of
girls in their teens, and each endeavoring to countenance the other in
this idle transgression against the laws of decency and decorum…. ” It dates back to 1753. (source: https://books.google.com/books?id=d_AxAQAAMAAJ&pg=PA53#v=onepage&q&f=false)

Either way, it’s not the strongest argument out there. Secondly, customs change. When the Queen came to Virginia, their senator put up an etiquette website that basically told the people not to go out and buy hats or gloves or other special clothes for the occasion.I guess different rules for different countries.

Only if that’s what we said He wants in Scripture. However, He says that is for men only and women are not to in 1 Corinthians 11:2-16. I once had a Muslim tell me that Christianity lacked holiness because we didn’t take off our shoes when entering church. My response to Him was the same, if God wanted that we would do it. But we get our orders from Scripture, not our opinions of what we think is right.
