Palace officials have reportedly had change of heart and Duke of Sussex can wear full military attire
The Duke of Sussex will wear his full military uniform when the queen’s grandchildren honour her memory by holding a vigil at her coffin.
In what is being called a dramatic u-turn, palace officials have informed Prince Harry that he can wear his military uniform at a final vigil.
This comes after Wednesday’s procession where Harry wore his morning suit instead of a uniform, despite serving in the British army for over 10 years.
Now, He is set to wear his Blues and Royals uniform on September 17, when he will join his brother Prince William, and cousins Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Zara and Peter Phillips, and Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn to honor their late grandmother’s memory at Westminster Hall.
Despite being a former Army officer Harry has been in civilian dress for official events, including walking behind his grandmother’s coffin on Wednesday 14 September when it was carried to Westminster Hall to lie in state.
An exception has also been made for the Duke of York, who is no longer a working royal but will wear his military uniform as a “special mark of respect” for the Queen when he stands guard around her coffin during a vigil with his siblings on the evening of Friday 16 September.

On Monday, Prince Harry wrote of his special memories of the queen attending his passing-out parade in 2006 when he became an officer in the British Army.
He told of his “first meeting” with his grandmother as “my Commander-in-Chief”, and is believed to have been referring to the occasion when she made him grin and blush as she reviewed the cadets.
