Cynthia, I've read that, too. He didn't care about clothes and had few of them. I believe he went shooting at Balmoral on one of his early visits and didn't have the "right" clothes which upset George VI, but Philip didn't care.
I've read that his mother was the same way. She left only three dressing gowns when she died. She had adopted a nun's habit as it was more practical when she operated her soup kitchen. Also she said she couldn't be bothered with taking care of her hair.
