This week, the Prince of Wales received the Editor's Lifetime Achievement Award for services provided to Philanthropy at the GQ Men of the Year Awards, and joked that it was not fashionable.
Charles, who turns 70 this year, told the audience that he initially thought it was a mistake when he found out he was receiving the award.
He said: "First of all, I really wanted to apologize for being badly dressed, I was afraid none of you would be able to compete with my incredibly elegant dinner jacket.
"When they first told me about GQ magazine's desire to give me a Man of the Year award, I was sure it must have been some kind of mistake.
"I thought it must be a kind of badly deserved fashion award.
& # 39; Particularly in terms of fashion, I'm like a stopped watch. In other words, I'm in fashion once every 25 years. "
