You know how everything the The Duchess of Cambridge wears sells out in seconds online? Well, move over Kate Middleton, there’s a new Royal causing a global fashion frenzy.
Since arriving in Belize and the Bahamas last week for the Diamond Jubilee tour, everybody’s been talking about Prince Harry’s brown suede shoes. The Kate-effect? Old news. Even though the Prince has previously confessed to not taking much interest in his clothes, after seeing all these photos of him clad in these boots, it’s fair to say he’s taken a liking to this specific pair (along with the rest of the world).
The Russell & Bromley desert boots in question cost a total of £115 and aren’t on sale for another two weeks – when you’re a Prince, you get treated to some pre-ordering perks obviously – but are already being pre-ordered by punters around the globe. The ‘Chuck’ boots come in three colours from tobacco (Harry’s chosen shade) to brown and blue suede but there’s no question over which colour will sell out first.
So while we wait to see if Prince Harry will wear his ‘Chucks’ during his visit to Jamaica and Brazi, let's get our boyfriends in on the act. It IS the Royal high street effect, after all.
