PINK socks. What do pink socks say about the wearer?

The Sun takes a look at Prince Harry, wearer of such socks (matching pair of) as he limbers up for another testing day of Army polo manoeuvres.

Harry is soon spotted taking a breather from the fray at Windsor Great Park. He is cosying up to his lover, the blonde Chelsy Davy.

The Sun studies the scene and says they “snogged”. The Mail shows the pair sharing a “tender kiss” in a “touching moment”. And in the Mirror, Harry is the “pucker prince”.

It’s all desperately romantic, and looking on we cannot help but wonder what part the prince’s socks have played in the grand seduction.

While many in Harry’s social set would be expected to sport pennyloafers with no socks, Harry has opted for a pair of shocking pink socks and no shoes.

In more sober times a young buck of Harry’s standing would have wooed the gels by twanging the suspenders on his regulation Harris Tweed socks. Now he flaunts pink ones like some of tropical bird of paradise.

And there is the sock dance. The Express shows Harry over two pictures employing his pink socks in a “bizarre” routine.

The paper says Harry had onlookers in “fits of laughter” as he “wiggled his toes” and “waved his legs around”.

“It certainly looked very odd, especially with the bright pink socks,” says an onlooker.” Everyone was in hysterics.”

Well, they say laughter is the best aphrodisiac. And with defences down, Harry gets the girl…
