One hundred Australian wool growers last month sent their best wool to England’s most prestigious mill, which then spun it into a cloth for a Savile Row tailor to turn into a custom suit for the 28-year-old second in line to the throne.

Left over fabric from the suit will be sold to British fashion houses with all proceeds going to Australia’s Royal Flying Doctor Service.
