Prince Harry breaks silence on ‘ban’ on military uniforms for Queen’s funeral

Prince Harry broke his silence after it was revealed he will not be wearing a military uniform Queen’s funeral.

Despite two tours of Afghanistan that have seen the Duke of Sussex at the forefront, he will wear civilian clothes at official events, including the late monarch’s state funeral.

Only working royals – which Harry and Andrew are not – are allowed to dress in uniform on five ceremonial occasions.

Although Prince Andrew is allowed to wear uniform as a “special mark of respect”.

A spokesman for Prince Harry says: “[Prince Harry] will wear a morning suit throughout the event in honor of his grandmother.

Royal commentator and author Omid Scobie said: “His decade of military service will not be defined by the uniform he wears and we respectfully ask that the focus remain on the life and legacy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.”

It follows reports that the Duke of Sussex has been denied the opportunity to wear a military uniform while mourning the death of his grandmother.

It’s likely a blow to ex-soldier Harry, who is proud of his decade in the armed forces and sad to be stripped of his honorary military posts, including captain-general of the Royal Marines, by the Queen following the Megxit.

Earlier on Monday he wrote about his special memories of the time the Queen attended his fainting parade in 2006 when he became an officer in the British Army. Prince Harry breaks silence on ‘ban’ on military uniforms for Queen’s funeral
