Prince Harry has arrived in London to attend his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral, but unlike other royal events of the past, this one is sure going to feel a whole lot different.
Along with his controversial and disgraced uncle Prince Andrew, Prince Harry will wear a suit while everyone else will wear their military uniforms.
As many royal fans can recall, Prince Harry was stripped of his role as Captain General of the Royal Marines earlier this year when he said he would not be resuming royal duties. Here’s what you need to know.
Disgraced Prince Harry Will Wear A Suit To Prince Philip’s Funeral – Just Like Prince Andrew
Prince Harry won’t be wearing his uniform because he was stripped of everything but his title when he and Meghan Markle decided that they would no longer be full-time working members of the royal family.
Prince Andrew, meanwhile, stepped back from public life as pressure mounted on the family over his links to pedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein.
Clearly, the two men have different reasons for not wearing their uniforms, but they will be both singled out at the funeral for being second class citizens within their own royal family, so to speak. Both men will don civilian clothing for next Saturday’s service.
There are also reports that say Prince Philip will have a low-key ceremony for his funeral, which is exactly the way he wanted it. On the day of the funeral, the coffin will be moved from the private chapel to the State Entrance of Windsor Castle.
It will be placed on a modified Land Rover, that the duke himself helped design, to be carried the short distance to St George’s Chapel. The procession will begin at 2:45 p.m. (9:45 a.m. ET) and will be led from Windsor Castle by a band of grenadier guards.
