The prince was happy to wear a pair of the impossibly tight swimming trunks – but over his jeans.
They were presented to him when a disabled sports presenter and two members of the Australian Invictus Games team visited him at Admiralty House, the Governor General’s residence where the couple are staying in Sydney.
Dylan Alcott, who is a triple Paralympic gold medallist in wheelchair tennis and wheelchair basketball, said: “We gave him a gift. One of the athletes, Matt, gave him a pair of budgie smugglers. And he put them on, over his jeans. It looks awesome.
“He said: ‘Shall I put them on?’. We said: ‘One hundred per cent’. So he put them on. Good on him.”
