While it is traditional for members of the royal family to wear military uniforms to events during the period of mourning, King Charles found himself in a unique predicament following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth. While his brother, Prince Andrew, and son, Prince Harry, both completed their military service, neither is considered a working member of the royal family anymore. First, it was decided that Andrew, but not Harry, could only wear his uniform to the Queen’s Vigil. However, according to new reports, both men can now wear the honorable attire to the event.
A Kensington Palace spokesman has revealed that Prince Harry will be dressed in military uniform as he stands with his cousins and brother next to his grandmother’s coffin during the 15-minute tribute.
Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise, James Viscount Severn, Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Prince William and Prince Harry are all expected to attend the vigil. Heading the coffin will be the future King of England, the Prince of Wales, with the Duke of Sussex at the foot.
Both Harry and William will be in uniform at the King’s request, while the other cousins will wear dressing gowns and dark, formal attire. “As far as I know, it was the King’s wish that Prince Harry be allowed to wear a uniform when the Queen’s grandchildren stand guard next to her coffin on Saturday night,” GB News royal reporter Cameron Walker tweeted.
Harry wore a black suit adorned with his medals during the Queen’s coffin procession on Wednesday, while his brother wore military fatigues. Andrew also wore a suit, while his siblings, King Charles III, Princess Anne and the Earl of Wessex all wore military uniforms.
“I wouldn’t characterize this as Harry throwing a strop because he can’t wear a uniform, or the palace bowing to public opinion – Harry is dividing the public. However, a grandchild vigil is a good solution,” said Royal Reporter Richard Palmer tweeted.
