Prince Harry Was Fashion Shamed by a 91-Year-Old Man – Yahoo News
The pressure is off for Prince Harry. As the spare not the heir, Princess Diana and Prince Charlesâs youngest son has been able to serve in active war zones, travel to Las Vegas, and remain unmarried into his 30s. But his lack of royal responsibilities doesnât excuse him from dressing appropriately â at least according to one 91-year-old man.
While visiting with 45 war veterans on Thursday, the 31-year-old member of the British royal family wore a blue suit, black oxford shoes, and white button down shirt without a tie. The men, many of whom took part in the D-Day Landings, were in formal attire with their military lapels and pins.
Prince Harry of Wales became a captain in the British Army and retired last year following 10 years of service and two tours of duty on the front lines of Afghanistan. And in comparison to his compatriots, the royal was rather underdressed.
As soon as Prince Henry walked into the event, he realized he got the dress code wrong. âAre they all wearing ties in there? I should have worn a tie. Oh well, itâs too late now,â he said, according to the Telegraph.
To make matters even more embarrassing, nonagenarian Ivor Anderson directly asked, âWhereâs your bloody tie?â
Despite the apparent fashion shaming, Anderson admitted that it was all in jest (ah, British
humor humour). âI told him he should wear a bloody tie. I said I had a spare one; he said he couldnât wear mine because he didnât have his wings.â (Wings are badges bestowed on qualified military parachutists. Harry flew helicopters.)
Remember Harry: Itâs always better to be overdressed than underdressed.
