Welcome to this week’s edition of , Faloni says: “A few years ago one of my customers, who is a keen polo player and moves in certain circles, sent us a picture of Prince William and asked, ‘Is he wearing your shirt?’”
Faloni then “saw the prince on TV on a tour of southeast Asia and said, ‘Wait a second, I think he is wearing our shirts.’”
Then the ultimate nod; William was wearing a Faloni cashmere sweater and denim shirt made on one of William and Kate’s family Christmas card photos.
Faloni tells the Sunday Times: “They don’t want to be flashy. If you’re Prince William, you don’t want 60 million people in England to know that you bought a £10,000 jacket from an expensive brand. You look for something that is discreet and classic…It’s classic but different—without going crazy.”
This week in royal history
It’s King Charles’ 75th birthday this week. He was born on November 14, 1948 at Buckingham Palace. To mark the occasion, he has been photographed by photographer Rankin for the cover of The Big Issue magazine. In an article for the publication, Charles writes about the Coronation Food Project, which he launched to tackle food insecurity and waste.
Will King Charles and Prince Harry reconcile? How will Prince William forge his own, distinct royal path?
