Prince Philip is Britain’s best dressed royal
Prince Philip has been voted the best dressed man in the British Royal Family.
The 94-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth was a somewhat surprising addition to GQ magazine’s annual list of Best Dressed Men.
Duke of Edinburgh Philip featured in 12th position, with only heartthrobs such as One Direction singer Harry Styles and ‘Sherlock’ actor Benedict Cumberbatch in front of him.
He also beat his younger relative Prince Harry, who came in 38th position.
His son Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, appeared in seventh position on last year’s list but, along with Prince George, was absent from this year’s rundown.
Philip is known for his timeless sense of style, favouring classically tailored Savile Row suits. He also manages to put his own twist on his outfits, like when he attends Royal Ascot usually wearing a grey top hat rather than a traditional black one.
Savile Row tailor Patrick Grant previously raved about Philip’s sense of style, explaining: “The Duke has always favoured a simple suit made from heavyweight British cloths: tough twills and twist worsted – never excessively fitted, and always well balanced.”
The list is topped by ‘The Danish Girl’ actor Eddie Redmayne, with other famous faces featured including David Beckham and his son Romeo.
Designers Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford and Vivienne Westwood, television personalities Nick Grimshaw and Piers Moran and , Alexander McQueen’s creative director Sarah Burton are among the panel who compiled this year’s list.
