At least 450 Armenian military personnel killed in Azerbaijani attacks
The announcement by palace sources as reported by the Mirror on Monday, September 12, says that the brothers are non-working members of the royal family and therefore aren’t required to wear uniforms.
Working members of the royal family will wear military uniforms at just five of the ceremonial events to honour the Queen.
The events at which members will wear their military uniforms are the Service of Thanksgiving at St Giles’ Cathedral, Edinburgh, the procession to Westminster Hall and service of prayer and reflection, the Vigil at Westminster Hall, the state funeral at Westminster Abbey and the Committal Service at St George’s Chapel Windsor.
Prince Harry and Prince William are expected to wear suits whilst Prince Andrew, the Duke of York is expected to wear a morning suit. These suits are likely to be the same as those worn for Prince Philip’s funeral.
With no military uniforms to be worn by Prince Andrew and Prince Harry at the Queen’s ceremonies, the events will take on a more relaxed and modern look that is befitting of the views of the two princes.
