British GQ has named Britain's 50 best dressed men, and the royal who ranks highest on the list this year is Prince Philip. (A choice that prompted Vanity Fair to declare, "The Man Named Best Dressed in the Royal Family Is Probably Not Who You’d Expect." Perhaps not surprising, though, considering last year then-1-year-old Prince George was the top royal.) The Duke of Edinburgh comes in at No. 12, and the magazine declares that Queen Elizabeth's consort "comes across effortlessly in the way he dresses." Princes Charles and William didn't even make the list, and Prince Harry came in at No. 38. The top 10:

  1. Eddie Redmayne, actor
  2. Nick Grimshaw, radio DJ

  1. Sam Smith, singer
  2. David Beckham, soccer star
  3. Patrick Grant, fashion designer
  4. Harry Styles, member of One Direction
  5. Skepta, rapper
  6. Romeo Beckham, soccer star's son
  7. Benedict Cumberbatch, actor
  8. David Gandy, model
