King Charles Wears a Stylish Coat That Was Previously Owned By Late Father Prince Philip

Members of the royal family have become accustomed to wearing jewelry pieces or articles of clothing that once belonged to another royal relative. For example, Kate Middleton honored the late Princess Diana by wearing her emerald green necklace to an event. Even Camilla Parker Bowles donned a dazzling diamond tiara that was previously worn by Queen Elizabeth II

Now, King Charles has joined the fun by sporting a fashion piece that once belonged to his late father, Prince Philip. While attending a Palm Sunday service held in Gloucestershire, the monarch was spotted wearing a camel wool coat with a navy blue shirt and a striped red tie. 

The photo (shared by Hello! Magazine) shows King Charles smiling at royal fans and donning the coat with a pair of chestnut-colored boots. As it turns out, the fashion item once belonged to his late father, who previously wore the wool coat on several occasions. (FYI, the former Duke of Edinburgh sadly passed away in 2021 at the age of 99.)

This is just one of many tributes the King of England has dedicated to his late dad. Back in February, Buckingham Palace announced that the king will honor his father in his upcoming coronation ceremony. The music lineup (personally curated by the king himself) will feature Greek music as a tribute to the late prince, who was born in Greece. 

“His Majesty The King has personally commissioned the new music and shaped and selected the musical program for the Service,” the palace said in a statement, per the official royal website. “At the request of His Majesty, in tribute to his late father His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Greek Orthodox music will also feature in the Service performed by the Byzantine Chant Ensemble.”
