    Prince Harry is said to have fancied a quality bargain and carried out much of his clothes shopping at TK Maxx.

    The Duke of Sussex had even planned out a "15-minute shopping system" so that he could go about his purchases as quick as possible so he would not have to "think about clothes" for another six months.

    He detailed the intricate system for purchasing items of clothing in his memoir, Spare, which reveals the Duke received an "official clothing allowance" from King Charles III.

    It comes as Harry levelled criticism at the press for calling him a "slob" for his appearance.

    Talking through his experience of TK Maxx in his memoir, Prince Harry wrote: "Each year I received from Pa an official clothing allowance, but that was strictly for formal wear. Suits and ties, ceremonial outfits.

    "For my everyday casual clothes I'd go to T.K. Maxx, the discount store. I was particularly fond of their once-a-year sale, when they'd be flush with items from Gap or J.Crew, items that had just gone out of season or were slightly damaged.

    "With two hundred quid you could look like a fashion plate. Here, too, I had a system.

    "Get to the shop fifteen minutes before closing time. Grab a red bucket. Hurry to the top floor. Begin systematically working up one rack and down another."

    Man of the people Harry had an eye for a bargain it would appear, as he continued: "If I found something promising I'd hold it up to my chest or legs, standing in front of a mirror.

    "I never dawdled over colour or style and certainly never went anywhere near a changing room. If it looked nice, comfortable, into the bucket it went. If I was on the fence about it, I'd ask Billy the Rock.

    "At closing time we'd run out with two giant shopping bags, feeling triumphant. Now the papers wouldn't call me a slob. At least for a little while."

    Harry concluded that his shopping scheme meant he would not "have to think about clothes again for another six months."
