Prince Harry teased over socks
Britain’s Prince Harry has been teased for wearing cheap socks with an £8,000 outfit.
The young royal attended an event at London’s St James’s Palace on Wednesday (14.01.15) to which he wore a Savile Row suit, designer shoes and a luxury watch, but has been mocked for wearing golf socks which can be bought for £1.66 a pair along with the costly ensemble.
According to The Sun newspaper, the 30-year-old prince’s Dege & Skinner suit cost £3,500, which he paired with a £190 shirt and a Breitling watch, which would have set him back approximately £3,150. Completing the outfit, he wore luxury, personalised leather shoes from made-to-measure bootmaker, John Lobb.
However, when he sat down for an official photograph with NBA player Carmelo Anthony, the prince exposed his black Dunlop socks which can be purchased as part of a three-pack for £5.
The 30-year-old bachelor was with the sportsman to present graduation certificates to young people who had taken part in the Royal Foundation’s Coach Core initiative, which trains sports coaches for work within their communities.
Luckily for Harry, he was upstaged by the basketball star who sported bright yellow and blue patterned socks for the occasion.
