The Duke of Edinburgh has made it on to GQ's Best-Dressed Men List.

GQ said Prince Philip "deserves yet another medal - for his services to classic British tailoring".

The magazine's deputy editor Bill Prince added:

Top-down management still rules among the royals, evidenced by the degree to which the Duke of Edinburgh's sons, grandsons (and who knows, great-grandson) hero-worship his time-honoured style.

Prince Charles made it to eighth place last year, but does not feature on the current list.

Fashion designer Ozwald Boateng tops the Worst-Dressed List, followed by politician George Galloway, TV scientist Brian Cox and former Co-op Bank boss Paul Flowers.

The poll was voted for by staff at GQ and a panel of experts from the worlds of fashion and celebrity, including Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford, Sir Roger Moore and Donatella Versace.
