Queen Elizabeth II has ordered that no royal should wear a military uniform for her husband, Prince Philip’s funeral.
She made this announcement following debate about whether Prince Harry and Prince Andrew can wear uniforms to their grandfather’s funeral.
Recall that Prince Harry was stripped of his three military titles when he quit royal duty with his wife, Meghan Markle.
According to reports, Royal protocol says he can only wear a suit with medals at royal functions.
Due to this, there was a debate on whether he will be the only senior male in the royal family who won’t wear the military uniform after losing his honorary ranks.
Also, there was serious debate about whether Prince Andrew should be allowed to wear his Admiral uniform since he’s been implicated in the scandal involving convicted pedophile, Jeffrey Eastern.
It was gathered that the prince refused to speak to the FBI over his alleged links to Jeffrey Epstein
Because of this, Andrew has lost many of his charitable patronages.
However, he has not been stripped of his military positions and titles yet, unlike Prince Harry.
Following these reports, Insiders involved in planning for Saturday’s funeral have claimed that Queen Elizabeth II has banned Royals from wearing a military uniform for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral.
According to the insiders, the queen personally stepped in to suggest all senior male royals wear suits and ties.
A military source told The Sun: “It’s the most eloquent solution to the problem.”
Another source confirmed last night that “current thinking is no uniforms”.
