Caught & Social: Prince Harry’s in the fast lane

F1 225x300 Caught & Social: Prince Harry’s in the fast laneWhile his brother and new sister-in-law were busy hobnobbing with some of Hollywood’s hottest talent, Prince Harry was making the most of being allowed to wander where he pleased at the British Grand Prix.

Or so says Dominic West, star of the Wire, who has hailed Prince Charles as the world’s finest clothes-wearer. “Charles is the best-dressed man in the world. His suits are incredibly sharp.”West, speaking at a Clarence House dinner for the 35th anniversary of The Prince’s Trust puts Charles’ sartorial skill down to the influence of the Duchess of Cornwall. “He used to dress appallingly before he married Camilla,”he says.
