Prince Harry prompts sales of Russell & Bromley

Prince Harry prompts sales of Russell & Bromley

We wouldn’t usually look to Prince Harry for fashion advice, but it seems that the young royal deserves serious snaps for his latest fashion choices. Whilst on an official Diamond Jubilee tour for his granny in Belize and the Bahamas, the ginger prince was snapped wearing Russell & Bromley’s ‘Chuck’ desert boots – a more upmarket version of the popular Clarks style.

Available in tobacco (Harry’s choice), brown and blue suede, the shoes are a sturdy, good choice for a thoroughly English gentleman, and are great for important, official events, as demonstrated by Harry here.

Seeing something of a Kate effect, Harry’s choice of footwear didn’t go unnoticed, with fans of the prince’s style rushing to purchase the shoes for themselves. Much like Kate’s ability to make retailers like Whistles and Reiss sell out of an item instantly, Russell & Bromley too found themselves overwhelmed with orders for the as-yet unavailable shoes.

It’s nice to see another fashionable royal. Watch out Kate!
