No uniform for Prince Harry at the funeral? Duke of Sussex expected to attend service in a suit after being stripped of military roles following Megxit

  • It is unlikely that Prince Harry will be wearing a military uniform at his grandfather’s funeral
  • It is likely that he will dress like other former servicemen in a suit and medals
  • Prince of Wales and Duke of Cambridge expected to be in regimental attire

It is unlikely that Prince Harry will be wearing a military uniform at his grandfather’s funeral.

He was stripped of his role as Captain General of the Royal Marines, which he took over from Prince Philip after deciding to resign his royal duties last year.

He also lost two other honorary military positions. This means that he cannot wear the corresponding uniforms during official events.

It is likely that he will dress like other former servicemen in a suit and medals.

Harry spent ten years with the Household Cavalry (Blues and Royals), rose to lieutenant and served in Afghanistan.

He wore his Blues and Royals uniform when he married Meghan in Windsor in 2018.

Other members of the Royal Family, most notably the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and the Earl of Wessex, are expected to be in regimental attire.

The only other male senior royal in a suit is likely to be the Duke of York, who stepped back from public life in 2019 due to his friendship with the late convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Buckingham Palace has said it will confirm the details later this week.
