Prince Harry has become one of the biggest talking points of the Coronation of King Charles – and it has nothing to do with any revelatory interviews or a new book this time.
The Duke of Sussex played second-fiddle to pretty much everyone at the big event early today (May 6), sitting in the third row, away from all the senior royals.
But despite the lack of exposure at the event, it didn't stop fashion giants Dior apparently sponsoring and making the suit he wore – leading to some on social media to believe he may have got it for free.

Despite it being a simple black suit, similar to pretty much any suit you could get at a shop such as Slaters (other good suit shops are available), Dior took to Twitter a few hours after the event to reveal the partnership.
They said: "Tailoring fit for royalty.
“Dior is honoured to have dressed Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, for the coronation of King Charles III in a custom design by Kim Jones.
“Seen arriving at Westminster Abbey, gain an insight into the savoir-faire of his three-piece suit next.”
Although the tweet read like something else would follow, nothing did – apart from a lot of rage from royal fans.
The tweet quickly went viral, hitting 1.5 million views within a few hours, and being liked 15.4k times.
And among the near-2,500k replies, a lot of anger was seen, with some even blaming the non-attending Meghan Markle for the suit.

It even saw many people calling for Harry to be stripped of his titles.
One person wrote: “I think what's oddest about this is that the man already obviously owned a perfect morning suit.
“A better one tbh.”
And a second posted: “Meghan made Harry wear Dior because she couldn’t be bothered to attend. “Seems like a back door deal is accurate, though why they would need it when they have Beatrice Borromeo and Pierre Casiraghi is beyond me.”

A third added: “How disgusting that Prince Harry is flogging Dior suits for money on the most sacred day of his father’s life.
“@KensingtonRoyal Sussex and his heirs must be removed from the succession, and all his titles revoked.
