Queen Elizabeth II has ordered that no royal should wear military uniform for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral.
This is coming after it was debated about whether Prince Harry can wear the military uniform having been stripped of his honorary ranks.
Prince Harry had faced the humiliating possibility of being the only senior male in the royal family who won’t wear the military uniform after losing his honorary ranks.
Harry, 36, was stripped of his three military titles when he quit royal duty with his wife Meghan Markle.
Royal protocol now means the Duke who did two tours of Afghanistan with the Blues and Royals, can only wear a suit with medals at royal functions.
Also, serious questions were raised about whether Prince Andrew should be allowed to wear his Admiral uniform since he’s been implicated in the scandal involving convicted pedophile Jeffrey Eastern.
While Andrew has lost many of his charitable patronages, he has not been stripped of his military positions and titles yet, unlike Prince Harry.
Controversial Tv host, Piers Morgan even weighed in saying “shameful” Prince Andrew should be denied wearing an Admiral’s uniform until he speaks to the FBI over his alleged links to Jeffrey Epstein.
A military source told The Sun: “It’s the most eloquent solution to the problem.”
Buckingham Palace has not confirmed what the royals will be wearing.
However, a statement from the palace said: “Funeral arrangements are being finalised and we will announce them accordingly.”
Insiders involved in planning for Saturday’s funeral claim the Queen personally stepped in to suggest all senior male royals wear suits and ties.
