Honestly, Charles is always so well-dressed that I wonder why William and Harry don't follow him suit!

I seem to recall that Prince Charles was critiqued for wearing a blue suit at Diana's funeral when everyone else wore black. His response was that this was Diana's favourite suit.

IMO Harry is often better dressed (in terns of style/elegance) than William especially here lately.

Henrik might have retired but his "spirit"/ fashion sense still works on in his son Joachim

a bright purple vest, the inside of his coat lined in bright baby blue.

for me, there is nothing wrong with blue suits, but at least get some variety in ties ...baby steps, and then we can venture into grey suits

Men's suits are very often subdued and so it is important to contrast colour. Here a brown suits is lifted with a light shirt, crisp pocket-handkerchief and contrasting tie:

With a dark suit, an unusual tie in a light colour can look great:

I always like it when Frederik wears a scarf with his suit:

Here, a blue suit looks great with the shirt and tie:

I think they are trying to out-blue Daniel! They certainly wouldn't raise an eyebrow in Sweden

Now, let's have a look at a royal gentleman who has never been afraid of challenging the dress-codes. PH. Who is here seen wearing a suit and a tie, which in monarchies left unmentioned would cause a collective nervous breakdown.

This is beyond extraordinary!

That suit and tie would delight me separately, but the combo thrills me to bits! Yay, Henrik!

I have seen it the same way, Pranter. Harry has his father's sensibilities in dress, though not to his father's high standards (yet). Also his mother's, it was the one trait both parents shared. Even Charles made allusion to that, indicating how much he appreciated Diana's sense of style. So given both parents' sartorial gifts, what's up with the next generation? Maybe George and Charlotte will inherit the gene.

Lord Frederick did some modelling in his younger years didn't he, so he is probably quite interested in fashion.

As for Henrik, I shall quite miss seeing some of his very individual clothing choices now he's retired. He's obviously a lover of bright colours, as I am myself! Was he an unconventional dresser as a young man?

There are some photos

Last week Svensk Damtidning had an article about the fashion of the royal men.
Fredrik af Klercker, a style expert who has written a book "Stiljournalen - Allt om klassisk herrstil" ("Style Journal - All about classic men's style") says: "Prince Daniel seems to be the one at the royal family who has the biggest interest in style. He has a super stylish morning jacket, super stylish black tie and always good-looking suits".
Daniel Lindström from magazine Cafe agrees: "Prince Daniel is the one who dresses himself best. But he also has a body of like a mannequin or a model, it is just to put clothes on him". Lindström says about Carl Philip and Chris O'Neill: "There is a problem with the fit. Carl Philip looks fantastic but he doesn't have the really right clothes on. He has too big jeans and a little too big jackets. I would advice them to find suits which feel modern and are truly fitting, so that they fit perfect. Maybe they could also have trousers which are a little shorter so that they are more modern". Lindström thinks also that the royal men should experiment with their clothes a little more.
Both Lindström and af Klercker think that prince Charles is the best dressed royal man right now. British royal men are always well dressed. King Felipe is also very well dressed. Af Klercker also says that in his book he highlights prince Bertil as a style icon. He was such a cool personality, the charisma just shined from him. Besides, he managed to look perfectly cool out even when he was playing boules. And then he was as naturally cool when he was sitting at the Nobel Prize ceremony.

And here is another example of the effortlessly stylish Prince Daniel in a blue . . . wait for it . . . double-breasted suit. Very suave indeed. It is surprising when you look to see just how many he has in various different shades of blue.

I have to be honest, I like Daniel in double-breasted suits as they seem to make him look far more sophisticated and distinctive somehow, although I have to admit I wasn't a fan of his brown, many-pocketed version.

Perhaps he is taking a page from Prince Charles book and setting his own standard and style. Either that or they suit snuck under the Palace Royal Fashion Police radar!
