Vivienne Westwood paid homage to Prince Charles during her latest fashion show at Milan Men's Fashion Week on Monday.

Wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with a portrait of the royal in a military beret, the fashion designer praised the 73-year-old as she took to the catwalk for her bow.

"I want to pay tribute to Prince Charles and the great job he's doing," said the famously eccentric fashion legend.

She went on to cite how he has used his royal status as a way of championing organic farming and raising awareness of climate change.

"If Prince Charles had ruled the world according to his priorities during the last 30 years, we would be all right and we would be tackling climate change," she concluded.
