Prince Harry hasn’t had the easiest lead up to his birthday.
His grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, passed away last week, and yesterday he attended the coffin procession that brought her from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall, where she will lay in state until her funeral.
Rather than wear a military uniform, which is traditional for larger ceremonies, the Duke of Sussex was dressed in a morning suit as he stepped away from his royal duties in 2020. Instead, he pinned medals to his jacket to indicate his service to the military.
The choice of suit may be indicative of his sentimentality: the prince opted for a grey pinstriped trouser, rather than an all-black ensemble, as he had worn them in a similar fashion during a wedding that he’d attended in 2019 with his grandmother.
To acknowledge Prince Harry’s 38th birthday, we look at how he styles his suits, and why it works so well.
