The news that Prince Harry will not be allowed to wear his military uniform during the funeral and farewell ceremonies for Queen Elizabeth II because he is no longer a working member of the royal family has made headlines and international news agencies.
Apparently, this true news angered Prince Harry, so he issued a statement in which he spoke about the matter and the importance of focusing on the most important event, which is the funeral of Queen Elizabeth.
The Independent has published the statement issued by a spokesman for Prince Harry, which stated that he will be wearing a morning suit rather than the military and should focus on the life and legacy of Queen Elizabeth II.
The statement read: “Prince Harry will wear a regular morning suit for the duration of the special events honoring his grandmother. His decade of military service will not be categorized by the uniform he wears and we respectfully request that the focus remain on the life and legacy of Queen Elizabeth II.” Military uniform It seems that the appearance of Megan Markle and Prince Harry alongside the royal family after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, especially since the circumstances ruled that they were in London during her death, did not allow them to be treated as if nothing had happened.
While Prince Harry was prevented from wearing a military uniform at his grandmother’s funeral because he abandoned her royal duties, Prince Andrew, who was stripped of his royal titles because of the cases involved in the United States of America, was allowed to wear a military uniform at his mother’s funeral.
Prince Andrew got an exception from his brother, King Charles III, to wear his uniform in the last stand, when the Queen’s four sons stand on the four sides of her coffin, while the king did not grant his son Harry this exception despite his ten years military service.
