It was not just Prince Harry’s solo attendance that made headlines during the Coronation – his smart look in the bespoke three-piece suit by Dior set tongues wagging. Fashion commentators were quick to notice that Prince Harry skipped British brands – Alexander McQueen and Emilia Wickstead were seen on other royals – and opted for the suit designed by Dior’s artistic director Kim Jones, during his appearance at Westminster Abbey.

According to a media statement by Dior, The Duke of Sussex chose a bespoke tailcoat and a double-breasted waistcoat in black wool and mohair, combined with grey trousers and a white cotton shirt with a grey silk tie. Black derbies, also signed by the House, completed the ensemble.

Daryll Alexius Yeo, Fashion Stylist and Creative Consultant had this to say about the look, “Prince Harry looked very put together in his custom three-piece Dior suit. When he was seen arriving at Westminster Abbey, my first thought was that his suit was refreshingly minimal and sharp, taking more of an understated approach to the traditional coronation dress code – some people call it rebellion, I prefer to say it’s giving ‘less is more’. While he got plenty of negative reviews for wearing a renowned French fashion house, little did they know that the Artistic Director at Dior Men responsible for Prince Harry’s off-late suit looks is British himself, ala Kim Jones.”

Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have been spotted wearing Dior on several occasions, prompting rumours that the duo may be striking a partnership with the brand.

Harry’s late mother Princess Diana was also a fan of the French maison – she wore a Dior slip dress and carried a handbag named ‘Chouchou’ to the Met Gala in 1996. The Dior handbag has seen been renamed Lady Dior in her honour.
