Hi Folks!

 

I read the joke below and I've got the idea but I didn't understand the grammar in the last sentence.Could you help me?

 

"A wealthy woman returned home from a ball.She rang the bell for her buttler, and when he appeared she said, "Edward take off my shoes",and he did.Then she said, "Edward take off my coat", and he did."Take off my dress, an he did."And now Edward", she said,"if you want to remain in my employment, you are never to wear any of my clothes again".

 

Why did she say "you are neve to wear" instead of "you will never wear"

 

Thanks, Jeferson
