However, over the years, they have proven themselves to be mature, kind-hearted, and generous people, which earned them many fans all around the world.
Yet, Prince William and Prince Harry are still human at the end of the day, so they cannot be perfect 100 percent of the time. As a result, there are some things about them that critics do not necessarily like.
Read on to find out one big thing about the princes that continue to get on people’s nerves.
People think Prince William and Prince Harry need to dress better
There’s no doubt that Prince William and Prince Harry often dress well for the occasions. Their looks are usually very clean and put-together. However, what grinds their critics’ gears is the fact that sometimes their suits are not fitted.
For men, fitted suits are important in making one’s appearance better. According to British suit-making brand Hawes and Curtis, the perfect suit should have a jacket that fits the contour of one’s shoulder, sleeves that are not too long and not too short, and pants that are trim but not too tight.
Prince William and Prince Harry often to wear nicely-fitted suits, though on certain occasions, they do not. For example, on his recent tour to Pakistan, Prince William was seen wearing a gray suit that was a bit too loose on his arms and legs, which did not look good to some onlookers.
One person commented on Instagram: “Who is the royal fashion stylists? Will and Harry need help with their clothes. They need decent fitted modern suits..”
“William seriously needs a designer here,” another person chimed in.
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are often praised for their fashion
While Prince William and Prince Harry are receiving criticism for their clothes, their wives, on the other hand, have been praised for being fashion icons.
Both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle often blow fans away with their stylistic choices. People pay close attention to what the duchesses wear, and fashion brands often get a lot of exposure anytime Middleton or Markle dons their clothing items.
The clothes they wear also tends to sell out extremely quickly, showing that Middleton and Markle definitely have a huge influence on the fashion industry.
Are there rules concerning clothing that royals have to follow?
Just because royals are allowed to express themselves with their clothes does not mean that they can wear whatever they want. There are strict rules that they usually have to follow.
Generally, royals are not allowed to dress in casual clothing. For formal events, men will wear suits while women are expected to wear hats in the morning and married women can don tiaras in the evening.
Outfits should also not be too revealing, so you will rarely see royal women flashing cleavage or wearing tight, short skirts.
When visiting other places, there are some rules that should be followed as well. They are expected to dress in a way that respects their host country’s culture.
Royal biographer Marcia Moody shared:
“Men may need tie pins, medals, sashes, and handkerchiefs. Women often pay respect to the country with a national flower or symbol incorporated into their clothing. Symbolic colours are chosen, significant jewellery decided upon.”
Since royal women get a lot of attention for what they wear, oftentimes they also will choose outfits made by local designers as a way to show appreciation.
Finally, when traveling abroad, royals will also pack an all-black outfit. If a sudden death occurs at home, they can dress appropriately for the mourning occasion as they arrive back in London.
