Clarence House shared another clip of Prince Charles on Friday following his interview with British Vogue’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful.
In the clip, Prince Charles is asked where his style comes from.
The bashful royal replied: “I thought I was like a stopped clock. I’m right twice every 24 hours.
“Anyway people come round after 25 years to dressing like I do.
“No, I mean I’m very glad you think it has style.”
Charles added: “I just try to, I mind to a certain degree, I mind about detail and colour and things like that and colour combinations.
“I’m one of those people who hates throwing anything away or wasting anything.
“So, I rather like trying to keep things as long as I possibly can.
“Hence, as long as I retain the same shape and can go on fitting into things, I’d rather have them repaired, you know what I mean and maintained. And even patched if necessary.”
