How Prince Harry's mixed up his look for the South Africa royal tour

Since Meghan Markle joined starting dating Prince Harry, the world’s followed her every sartorial move. From £9,000 Valentino dresses to her own charitable fashion line, she’s proved to be quite the fashion force.

Meanwhile, when it comes to style, poor Harry hasn’t had a look in. But that looks to be changing.

Over the last few years, the Duke of Sussex’s sense of fashion has steadily improved, transforming him into a well-groomed prince clad in slick J. Crew suits, desert boots and crew neck jumpers.

And his style transformation is more clear than ever during the 10-day tour of South Africa and Africa.

We’ve seen him opt for lighter, more understated shades - pale blues, greige and khaki - this past week, quite possibly a nod to his safari surrounding and a clever way to keep cool in the heat.

Day one of the tour saw Prince Harry looking fresh and ready as he stepped foot on South African soil wearing a white linen button-down with a pair of ‘greige’ chinos and grey trainers. It was quite the casual look for the new dad, but a look he pulled off well.

Like his wife Meghan, the Duke doesn’t shy away from affordable high-street labels either. Later that day, Harry arrived at the District 6 Museum and Homecoming Centre wearing a chic two-piece from J. Crew.

His wife may boast sartorial selling power, but it turns out Prince Harry is quite the influencer, too: the Unstructured Ludlow Jacket, £118, and Ludlow Suit Pant, £110, sold out almost instantly.

However, royal fans wanting to emulate the duke’s look will be pleased to know that the American-based retailer has brought back a new winter-friendly Ludlow suit just in time for the colder months, and it’s just as stylish.

That’s not the only affordable piece Harry has worn in Africa so far.

During the couple’s visit to Monwabisi Beach with Waves for Change, the prince sported a forest green linen shirt, grey chinos and a matching pair of grey Adidas trainers.

The Adidas Gazelle tennis shoes are a clear favourite of Harry’s, who was seen wearing the exact grey pair back during the Invictus Games in 2017 and during the royal couple’s tour of Australia last autumn.

They’re a popular shoe style, often selling out and being restocked. Luckily, they are currently available and are very affordable at £69.99.

The versatile pair are available for both women and men, as well as children, so we hazard a guess baby Archie might well sport a pair in the not-too-distant future.

For a smarter shoe, Prince Harry turns to Clarks: the high street retailer all Brits know - and some love.

The duke wore a pair of £100 sturdy tan suede desert boots during a tree planting event with local school children at the Chobe Tree Reserve in Botswana.

He completed the look with a dark green button-down and navy chinos.

Harry’s not afraid to accessorise, either. One piece of jewellery which he’s never seen without is his traditional African bracelet with patterned markings around it, and there’s a good reason behind it.

In an interview with Town and Country in 2017, the prince revealed his love for the country, stating it was a “place to get away from it all” after his mum’s death in 1997.
