Time and time again news media and online commentators have criticized Meghan Markle for her wardrobe. Whether it be pants or dresses with fashionable hemlines, it often feels like the Duchess of Sussex will get backlash for any ensemble. Now, it is Prince Harry's turn to get called out by the royal fashion police, sort of.
During his royal tour in Australia, Prince Harry jokingly wore a Speedo over his pants after he was gifted it by the Invictus Games competitors. An Australian TV network tweeted the hilarious photos, writing, "Game on Down Under! Catch all the fun tonight when Dylan Alcott chats to Prince Harry and Aussie Invictus Games competitors Nicole Bradley and Matt Model on Invictus Games Today"

Upon receiving the unique gift, Prince Harry reportedly said, “Oh, look at those! It doesn’t get better than that, does it? And this type of silk camouflage, I’ve actually never seen it. Only in Australia would you ever find something like this. It’s so wrong, but it’s wonderful.”
If you were wondering, Australian slang for Speedo is actually "budgy smuggler," so think about the royal rocking that to the beach next summer.
