Meet the samurai prince.

Prince William donned the trappings of a 16th century feudal warlord Saturday during the third day of his tour through Japan.

The Duke of Cambridge shed his restrained business attire befitting a 21st century British royal for the warrior-like headgear, tunic and sword of a samurai.

His dress was in honor of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the Japanese warlord who unified his country in the 16th century. Prince William’s royal makeover was part of his stop at the TV production stage of Tokyo studio, BBC News reported.
