Harry told the publication: ‘It’s funny because I don’t think of myself that way [as a style icon]… but bringing people together is the thing I’m most proud of.
‘At shows I get kind of a front-row seat to see a bunch of people getting in a room together and just being themselves.’
Harry went on to discuss his new beauty brand Pleasing, noting: ‘It’s starting with nail polish, because that was kind of the birth of what it was for.

‘Me seeing a colour on a flower or a wallpaper or something and thinking, “Oh, I wanna put that on my nails.” It was a fun little project, but during the pandemic, and when we eventually named it Pleasing, it felt like it was so much more than nail polish.
‘I’ve always found that the moments in my life which have brought me the most joy are the small ones, whether it be, you know, the end of the night under the stars or a bite of food, or sitting with your friends thinking, “Oh, I’m never gonna forget this.”
‘It’s always those moments that I find have the longest-lasting effect on me, in terms of sparking something wonderful in me. I really think that the essence of Pleasing is finding those little moments of joy and showing them to people.’
