Prince Harry hits out at military uniform ban

PRINCE Harry has hit out at his uniform ban after being told he cannot wear a military outfit while mourning the Queen.

The Duke of Sussex’s spokesman insisted his “decade of military service is not determined by the uniform he wears”.

And they confirmed Prince Harry will instead wear a morning suit throughout events honouring his grandmother the Queen.

The spokesman said: “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.”

Only working royals can dress in uniform at ceremonial occasions to mourn the Queen, meaning Prince Andrew has also had to wear a suit.

He stood out yesterday as the only one among his siblings not in uniform as they walked behind their mother’s coffin in Edinburgh.

But the Duke of York has been allowed to wear his uniform when he stands guard of the Queen’s coffin in Westminster Hall on Wednesday.

The exception was made as a “special mark of respect” for the Queen.

He is expected to join siblings King Charles, Princess Anne and Prince Edward for the traditional Vigil of the Princes.
