Prince Harry is entering his 'Hollywood style' era and no one saw it coming
If we haven’t been talking about Gwyneth Paltrow’s court appearance over the last week, we’ve been talking about Prince Harry’s.
The Duke of Sussex is currently back on home turf to testify as part of his civil action against Associated Newspapers along with a slew of other high-profilers including Sir Elton John and Elizabeth Hurley accusing the newspaper group of breach of privacy.

But, as with every time the Duke and Duchess of Sussex step out, sartorial hawk-eyes noticed a subtle detail in Harry's outfit. A tiny motif on his crisp white shirt proved that since moving stateside, Hollywood Harry has officially adopted a California-cool style agenda.
The 38-year-old stepped out in a suave dark grey suit with a matching tie. But as he jacket blew open in the wind, a miniature gold bee embroidered on the bottom of his shirt glistened on his bright white buttoned up shirt, signifying that he was in fact donning... whisper it.... Dior.

The Bee Shirt is a white cotton poplin shirt with a bee embroidered in 18-carat gold thread, complete with Dior’s signature mother of pearl buttons. According to the maison, "the shirt can be worn with a suit for a timeless look or with jeans for more laid-back allure."
Royal sartorialists noticed Harry’s style changing since leaving the UK in 2020 with Meghan Markle. Though he’s always been a style icon for both smart and street-style look alike. He’s adopted a less stringent, more laid back regime, with the odd designer gem peeking through.
On a many-a-date night out in Los Angeles with Meghan, he’s been spotted wearing casual shirts with rolled up sleeves, chinos and trainers and t-shirts layered with casual jackets.
Dior also happens to be one of his wife’s favourite designers. She wore a stunning ivory dress from the label for Archie’s christening, and an haute couture belted trench coat set to the Platinum Jubilee Thanksgiving service last year from its SS22 collection. His mother, the late Princess of Wales, was also a fan of the french label. So much so that the Lady Dior bag was named after her.
Tres chic, to say the least.
