William certainly has a fine posture and bearing- he carries himself like a future king. (Despite his boring and predictable wardrobe!)

I agree! I'm glad he has grown more comfortable in his role since he was younger. Now he looks every inch a future King. :)

Me too ladongas.
Now I lay me down to sleep
And pray the lord my soul to keep
All I ask of Prince William is
Please buy two other suits of obviously different fabric.

Which has always surprised me considering how well dressed both his mother and father are/were.

Off topic, i know, but Harry dresses really well.

He does look so much like his mother, the tallest one in the room. What a wonderful man he has become

The men in the royal family do have a stale look. Although, Charles seems to have updated some of his suits. If I was in their position and had their tailoring contacts, I would make sure my suits are updated and have a couple of trilby hats to go with it.

Looks like the visit went very well. William really does have a way with crowds and seems to enjoy interacting with them.

This lovely picture is on the front page of the Telegraph today:

The Prince of Wales is [consistently] one of the best dressed men on the planet.. Prince Harry *may* have inherited that gene, but the Duke of Cambridge clearly hasn't, and [in his relentless pursuit of 'appearing ordinary'], just looks DULL..

If he made the effort, he could do WONDERS for British menswear, as his wife does for British womenswear !

It seems like William had a good trip to Malta, and represented HM with grace and dignity, as he always does.

What, please, makes Harry being dressed better than his older brother?
I think none of them can compete with someone like the CP of Denmark or Pavlos of Greece (not even Pr. Charles, although I agree he dresses with style and proper to his age.)
Both british princes never seemed very amitious about their clothes and how things look and i agree about your remark about "dullness". William and Harry used to dress like they were in their 50s even when they were teenagers. Practicality seems to be priority no. 1 here! Pr. Harry´s hairstyle still looks like he was 10....
Still, I do like them for who and what they are, not for what they´re wearing.

I think the dull way of dressing fits his personality though. Charles is more of an extroverted, bombastic personality. William has spent almost his entire adult life searching for that 'normality' his mother always encouraged. He just wants to be like everyone else, even though he no doubt realises that can never happen. Harry dresses with a bit more personality, but I don't think either son will be quite as well dressed as their father is.

It's their casual clothes that are bad. Both William and Harry should be forced to wear suits or uniforms at all times. Someone please give William's horrible trainers to Lupo to get rid of. That means you, Cheeks!

I read once that some celebrities deliberately wear similar outfits every day in order to lower the value of photos taken of them. Maybe he's following along with the same idea. What's the value of another photo of William in a plain blue suit - unless, of course, he's doing something super cute like smooshing the cheeks of a little kid.

Charles is my style icon.

Yes, William's trip was indeed a success. He represented The Queen and stood in for Catherine in the best way. It was also good to hear that he updated Catherine on everything as the trip went along.

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge was given a warm Maltese welcome by Air Malta this weekend when he visited the island to celebrate its 50th anniversary since Independence.

Before the Duke boarded his return flight, Captain Kevin Grech, and Head of Cabin Crew and In-Flight Service Charlene Vella presented him with a painting from Air Malta to commemorate the occasion.

I think the BRF men are very well dressed in classic, well tailored suits. William appears to have "changed shape" recently, and I guess that is why some of his suits are not as well fitted as others.
