Harry has ’no interest in clothes‘ unlike Meghan, claims fashion expert | Royal | News

Prince Harry’s fashion choices during his three-day visit to the West African country, Nigeria, shows he has „no interest in clothes“ claims a fashion expert.

Despite Meghan Markle opting for colourful outfits to choosing to „wear more colour“ to fit in with the fashion in Nigeria, Prince Harry opted for less extravagant fashion choices and avoided bespoke tailoring.

Menswear writer, Derek Guy, wrote on social media platform X: „Prince Harry seemingly has no interest in clothes and (reasonably) dislikes the trappings of monarchy.“

He added: „IMO [In my opinion], this shows through his clothing choices (machine-made pick stitching along the lapel reveals this is a mid-tier ready-to-wear jacket)“

The Duke of Sussex was photographed wearing a cream linen jacket plucked from a hanger, rather than the hand-stitched Savile Row suits historically favored by British royals.

His sartorial choices caught the attention of the menswear commentator, who has become known for his brutal comments about male public figures for their ill-fitting suits.

He compared Harry’s fabric choices to another model, exclaiming the outfit would have been improved with a „wider lapel“ and „heavier fabric“ and he wished he would have worn a „different silhouette“.

Derek further pointed out there „was nothing wrong“ with ready-to-wear clothing, but was merely showing it as proof someone with his resources had „little interest“ in clothes.

Backing Prince Harry, one royal fan commented on X: „Well when the wife has taken the entire clothing budget you don’t have much choice but to go for the machine made rather than from the row.“

Whereas X user, @yourpunkmum said: „He leaves the fashion to his beautiful wife.“

Others supported Harry’s fashion choice, stating the jacket was a „kind of flex“ for the Prince.

Others were undecided. @SilkWilkes wrote: „Ready to wear is fine if the fabric is top notch. And on certain blazers (plain, no pattern) a pick stitch is actually a nice complement. But it’s too short and his tie is too skinny. And that blazer is screaming for brighter colours underneath, not a white shirt.“

During the visit to Nigeria, Meghan Markle wore a mixture of sentimental garments with high-end looks, layering her clothes with her favourite gold jewellery.

The couple was invited to Nigeria by the chief of the defence staff, and were also there to promote the duke’s Invictus Games, which stages sporting events for wounded, sick or injured veterans and serving military personnel.
