23 pics that prove Prince Charles was the original hipster

When you think of trendsetting royals, admittedly you might not immediately think of Prince Charles. But you really should. Honestly, we're not even joking.

He is the father-in-law to fashion savvy Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (AKA Kate Middleton) and Meghan Markle, and he was once married to the ever chic Princess Diana (who's style is still being mimicked 23 years later), but his fashion credentials have long been overlooked. Until now.

Back in the day Charles really served some lewks as he jetted all around the world being boujie and royal.

There are images below that you might well think have been edited, because he looks so freakin' cool. Forget about those East London hipsters, cycling around on their fixed wheel bikes with their Amish-style beards blowing in the wind. Prince C, Big C, Charlie Boy, whatever you want to call him, this guy is cool AF, and we declare him the OG hipster.
