Philip, 94, is in 12 position on GQ magazine’s Best Dressed Men list for 2016, while Prince Harry is in position 38.

Footballer David is in position number four, while 13-year-old Romeo is number eight on the list.

This year has seen the younger Beckham’s modelling career take off, including starring in the Christmas campaign for Burberry.

The second spot on the list is occupied by X Factor judge and BBC Radio 1 presenter Nick Grimshaw.

Singer Sam Smith is a new entry on the list in third position, One Direction’s Harry Styles is in sixth position, musician Skepta is seventh and Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is ninth.
