Prince Harry WON'T wear uniform to Queen's funeral after being stripped of military titles over Megxit | The Sun

PRINCE Harry is not expected to wear his military uniform at the Queen's funeral.

It's likely the Duke of Sussex, who quit royal life back in 2020, will wear a morning suit instead – as he did for Prince Philip's funeral last year.

Only working royals will parade in military attire when Her Majesty is laid to rest September 19.

And Harry was stripped of his military titles last year, with the Queen expressing her sadness at the time.

Prince Andrew has already been banned from wearing a uniform for the historic event next week, after he was stripped of his military titles and royal patronages.

Sources say the same restrictions will apply to Harry – who is also no longer a working royal.

A palace source said this morning: "As a non-working member of the Royal Family, the Duke of York will not wear uniform except as a special mark of respect for Her Majesty the Queen at the final vigil in Westminster Hall."

The King, the Prince of Wales, the Princess Royal and the Earl of Wessex will parade in military uniform at five events in total over the coming days as the nation mourns their beloved Queen.

These include the Service of Thanksgiving at St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh today, the Procession to Westminster Hall and service of prayer and reflection as well as the Vigil at Westminster Hall.

They will also wear uniform for the State Funeral Service at Westminster Abbey as well as the Committal Service at St George’s Chapel Windsor.

Buckingham Palace is yet to confirm whether the same will apply for Harry, who is a committed supporter of the Armed Forces.

Paying tribute to his grandmother this morning, he said: "Granny, while this final parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first meetings—from my earliest childhood memories with you, to meeting you for the first time as my Commander-in-Chief, to the first moment you met my darling wife and hugged your beloved great-grandchildren.

"I cherish these times shared with you, and the many other special moments in between.

"You are already sorely missed, not just by us, but by the world over."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared an emotional reunion with the Prince and Princess of Wales on Saturday as they greeted mourners outside Windsor Castle.

They travelled in the same car as the Prince and Princess of Wales in a show of unity after years of speculated rifts.
