Three men of the same household and of same royal lineage with three different looks. A tailored suit can present as many options as your imagination can behold. Suits can be traditional, trendy, chic, elegant, darling, and anything in between. Take a look at how these three princes styled their outfits at Royal Ascot.

A Top-Hat Twist

Starting with the youngest, Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, attended day 1 of the races wearing a three-piece suit and a traditional black top hat.

He opted for three contrasting yet coordinated pieces. His black tailored tailcoat had notched black lapels and a simple single-button closure.

The Duke opted for a simple white tailored shirt with French cuffs and cufflinks, a cornflower blue and white tie, and an interestingly cut waistcoat with diagonal double-breasted buttons.

His waistcoat was of a coordinating blue fabric with overlapping lapels and a white trimmed detail. His trousers were impeccably tailored grey-and-white striped fabric with a loose fit.

He accessorised with a black umbrella with a wooden crook handle. His sideburns were neatly trimmed and shaped as was his beard and moustache.

He wore a single small rose in his jacket buttonhole. Overall, the look was a trendy take on a Victorian gentleman’s classic. Would you wear such contrasting pieces in your three-piece suit?

Tailored Tradition

Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, opts for a similar top hat and tailcoat look of his brother but in more traditional, muted fabrics.

Prince William’s black top hat subtly contrasts with his dark grey tailcoat with more dramatic lapels than Prince Harry.

His loose-fitting tailored trousers have a more subtle pinstripe and his diagonal-buttoned, double-breasted waistcoat is an almost-muted sea-green, made from a lustrous fabric.

His tie is of a similar robin egg blue hue with a smaller pattern and a simple golden tie pin finishes the look, in contrast to the waistcoat’s silver buttons.

Prince William’s kerchief peaks from his pocket, matching his tailored white shirt and his buttonhole contains a white carnation.

Like Prince Harry, he accessorises with a crook-neck umbrella. Would you wear this more traditional suit look?

Matching Monochrome

Finally, Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, dressed for day 2 (The Prince of Wales’s Stakes) of the races with a fully-matching light grey three piece tailcoat with black top hat – and the ever-accessorised crook-neck umbrella.

His classic look sees all three pieces tailored in the same fabric with traditional lapels and rounded crossover lapels of the double-breasted waistcoat.

He dressed up his waistcoat with a gold watch-chain. The Prince added a couple of pops of colour with a silk black and white check handkerchief and a small purple carnation in his buttonhole.

With his white tailored French cuff shirts, matching tie pin and cufflinks, the look is dramatic in its simplicity and elegance.

It may not be as cutting-edge as his sons’ looks but it is certainly a classic.
