What is a "prince albert"?

A Prince Albert coat is a formal, knee-length coat that is typically worn for evening events. It features a short, tailored waist and flares out slightly towards the bottom. The coat usually has a peaked lapel and is typically made from wool or velvet. It was originally popularized by Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria, in the mid-19th century, and became a fashionable garment for men during the Victorian era. Today, the Prince Albert coat is still worn for formal occasions and is often paired with a black tie or white tie dress code.
