Princes Andrew and Harry were not allowed to wear their military uniforms at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.
Only working members of the British royal family will be allowed to wear military uniforms during the state funeral and processions. King Charles III made the decision so his son was forced to wear a suit despite his 10 years of military service.
Prince Andrew was stripped of his royal patronages and military affiliations amid allegations of sexual abuse allegations. He will be wearing his uniform at the final vigil. Prince Harry will not.
“Prince Andrew was stripped of all of his honorary military titles because of the disgrace he brought to the Royal Navy and the Royal Family following the accusations of sexual abuse by Virginia Giuffre,” author Shola Mos-Shogbamimu told Newsweek.
“Prince Harry served with distinction. He served in the army with distinction, rising in the ranks. He did two tours of Afghanistan. He still works with veterans and promotes support for wounded men and women,” she continued.
