Stop Looking At Kate Middleton And Look At Prince William's Beautiful Velvet Cape

An ode to the Duke of Cambridge and his velvet cape.

We here at HuffPost Canada Style would like to apologize to you.

You've had a busy week. Your "granny" turned 90 years old and you've been busy celebrating with the family (your children Prince George and Princess Charlotte looked adorable at the Trooping of Colours, by the way). But when you do step into the public eye with your royal clan, we fashion journalists tend to overlook your style.

It's your wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge who we admittedly flock to. We're accustomed to hunt down what labels she's wearing and idolize her perfectly blown-out hair. Even your brother, Prince Harry, catches our eye very often. We know you have a lovable sibling rivalry, but can you blame us?

However, things were different this time, Prince William. It's you who stood out from the rest.

On Monday, at the annual Order of The Garter Service at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, you, the Duke of Cambridge, arrived in your official uniform for Knights of the Garter. After your knighting in 2008, you obtained the ceremonial and traditional garments which consist of a blue velvet cape, gold badge, tassel and black ostrich plume hat.


So exquisite in fact, Wills, that many are now comparing you to a real-life Disney Prince.

Sigh. Kate is only lucky lady.

So forgive us, Prince William, for we need to pay a bit more attention to your style and fashion choices. You're a fan of slightly unbuttoned shirts, white jeans and fancy top hats, all incredible choices that we hope to see you wear more often.
