The Duke of Edinburgh has made it on to a list of best-dressed men – topped by BBC Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw.

Philip is 26th place in GQ's Best-Dressed Men List, alongside the likes of One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles (11th), David Beckham (13th) and Jude Law (20th).

Radio 1 Breakfast DJ Grimshaw has the top spot, followed by The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston and Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom actor Idris Elba is fourth, with former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens in fifth place.

The top ten is completed by rapper Tinie Tempah, X Factor host Dermot O'Leary, Arctic Monkeys' frontman Alex Turner, fashion designer Charlie Casely-Hayford and model David Gandy.

GQ said that Philip "deserves yet another medal – for his services to classic British tailoring", with deputy editor Bill Prince adding: "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."

The Prince of Wales was in eighth place last year but is not in the current list.

In the worst-dressed category, fashion designer Ozwald Boateng tops the list, followed by politician George Galloway, TV scientist Professor Brian Cox and former Co-op Bank boss Paul Flowers.

Dancer-turned-I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! contestant Vincent Simone came fifth, MasterChef's Gregg Wallace was eighth, and UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage was in tenth place. The poll was voted for by staff at GQ and a panel of fashion experts.
