Why Prince Harry Chose The Perfect Suit For His Big Moment

Kensington Steel Blue is the colour of the moment

Announcing to the world that they were to wed (somewhere deep inside Kensington Palace Kate Middleton takes a deep breath and stares menacingly out of an ornate window), there's been plenty said about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but how about the suit that Harry (and absolutely not his grandma) chose for the big reveal?

How about that?

Sure, it would have been great if Harry rocked up to the most-hyped engagement photo shoot of (probably) all time in bespoke floral Gucci with fur-clad, snake-embroidered loafers, but we're not sure the tabloids would have been quite so kind. Which is why his choice of simple blue-but-not-navy tailoring was ideal for the big occasion.

A colour that's lighter than navy but darker than the aggressive shades of Power Blue you might see on the Italian Sprezzatura summer set, Harry accessorises his Kensington Steel Blue (we're coining it) tailoring with a crisp white shirt, navy tie that's just the right width and simple, clean black brogues in a high shine leather.

While it's not an outfit that will drop any jaws, one of the most stylish habits a man can possess is to understand the feel of an occasion and dress accordingly. That is to say, when you're announcing unto the world that you're getting hitched to Rachel off of Suits, it's best to err more on the cautious side than anything.

Younger and cooler than William ( :( ), Harry opts for a cut that's about as slim as we imagine the palace will allow, and, if you lean in, can you see the flash of a bracelet on his right wrist?

That's definitely a bracelet.

The monarchy... so hot right now.
