    Why Can’t The Duke Of Sussex Wear His Uniform To The Late Queen’s Funeral?

    Any non-working royals are banned from wearing uniform to events. However, an exception was made for Harry’s uncle, Prince Andrew, to guard the Queen’s coffin during the Vigil of the Princes. He is no longer the senior member of the family, following the accusations that he slept with an underage victim of sex trafficking.

    Veterans are not permitted to wear their uniforms once they are no longer on active duty, as they now become civilians. However, Royals with military titles are able to wear uniforms even after not being on duty.

    Harry’s honorary military titles were revoked once he stepped down from his senior working role in the royal family. Those titles were gifted to him by the Queen. Since his titles are removed and he is no longer a part of working member of the Royal family, he is not allowed to wear uniforms to any events, especially the late Queen’s funeral.

    What Did Prince Harry Say About This Issue?

    A statement shared by royal reporter, Omid Scobie, who authored the Meghan and Harry ‘Finding Freedom‘ biography, makes it clear that the prince is very keen for the conversation to remain focussed on the life and loss of his grandmother, as opposed to what he will – or won’t – be wearing next week.

    The dress code for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral was reportedly changed – by the Queen – at the last minute, and nobody wore uniform. Traditionally, men in the Royal Family would adopt military uniforms for such an event. However, it was said that new dress code was implemented due to Harry having his honorary military titles revoked once he stepped down from his senior working role in the family.

    Sussex spokesperson tweeted: “[Prince Harry] will wear a morning suit throughout events honouring his grandmother. His decade of military service is not determined by the uniform he wears and we respectfully ask that focus remain on the life and legacy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’.”
