It has been confirmed, Prince Harry will wear his military uniform on Saturday in a special tribute to the Queen, The Mirror revealed.

This comes after a series of reports on the matter. It was released Princes Harry and Andrew wouldn’t be able to wear their Military uniforms. The Duke of Sussex’s spokesman said: “(Prince Harry) will wear a morning suit throughout events honouring his grandmother.

Continuing that the duke’s “decade of service is not determined by the uniform he wears”.

However the Duke of Sussex has now been given special permission to don his military colours for a lying-in-state vigil staged by Her Majesty’s grandchildren at Westminster Hall.

The Queen’s eight grandchildren, including Harry and his brother Prince William, will stand on Saturday evening in silence for a 15 minute vigil alongside Her Majesty’s coffin.

Palace officials are understood to have intervened after it emerged his disgraced uncle Prince Andrew, also no longer a working royal, had been given special permission to wear his uniform at a vigil over the Queen’s coffin attended on Friday by her four children, despite being banned at earlier ceremonial events.
