Casual Thursday? Recently, Prince Harry was "told off" by a 91-year-old veteran for forgoing a tie while meeting with a group of veterans at Southwick House, before the anniversary of the Normandy invasion. The spare to the heir opted for a crisp white button-up shirt -- opened at the collar -- with blue suit pants and a jacket. But alas, no tie. And the vets were none too pleased.

"Where's your bloody tie?" Ivor Anderson half-jokingly asked Prince Harry. The prince, obviously a bit caught off guard, replied, "I was told not to wear a tie and then you all turn up wearing ties, I feel underdressed."

Apparently, before meeting with the veterans, Prince Harry realized that he that he might have been a tad too casual. He reportedly asked John Phipps, the founder of the D-Day Revisited charity, "Are they all wearing ties in there? I should have worn a tie. Oh well, it's too late now."
