No uniform for Harry at the funeral? Prince expected to wear a suit after being stripped of military roles following Megxit (but he can still wear his medals)
- Prince Harry is unlikely to wear a military uniform at his grandfather’s funeral
- It is likely he will dress like other former servicemen in a suit and medals
- Prince of Wales and Duke of Cambridge expected to attend in regimental dress
Prince Harry is unlikely to wear 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 quit royal duties last year.
He also lost two other honorary military positions. This means he cannot wear the corresponding uniforms at official events.

It is likely he will dress like other former servicemen in a suit and medals.
Harry spent ten years with the Household Cavalry (Blues and Royals), rising to the rank of lieutenant and served in Afghanistan.
He wore his Blues and Royals uniform when he married Meghan at Windsor in 2018.

Other members of the Royal Family, notably Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and the Earl of Wessex are expected to attend in regimental dress.
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 over his friendship with the late convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Buckingham Palace has said it will confirm details later this week.
