King Charles 'Mortified' By His Fashion Blunder?

American journalist and royal author Christopher Andersen weighed in on King Charles' probably reaction after his sock with a hole made headlines. The King: The Life of Charles III told Fox News Digital he was likely "mortified" by it.

"Charles has always prided himself on his keen sense of style and his impeccably tailored wardrobe of bespoke suits, custom-made shirts and tasteful blazers," he explained, adding that the King had spent six figures on his clothes mid-90s.

"As for the hole, Charles, ever the champion of sustainability, is not above having things mended. [He] has had favorite suits, tweed jackets and cashmere overcoats resewn and patched up. Even the childhood teddy bear he travels with is still regularly restuffed and stitched back up, a task that for decades was reserved exclusively for the king's beloved nanny, Mabel Anderson."
