The Royal Family have long been influences on the global fashion scene—yes, including before the rise of social media—and while we usually turn our attention to the likes of Kate Middleton
and Meghan Markle
, there has been one member largely overlooked: the late Prince Philip.
The Duke of Edinburgh
passed away on April 9, 2021, with Buckingham Palace confirming the news via a statement from Queen Elizabeth, who had been married to the royal for 74 years. “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle,” it read.
Since joining the Royal Family following his wedding to then-Princess Elizabeth in 1947, the royal has rarely put a foot wrong on the fashion front, sporting a collection of three-piece suits, high-waisted trousers, as well as traditional uniforms like the Scottish kilt and military garb, throughout his long life of service.
