Prince Andrew wears a suit to Philip’s funeral after Queen refused his demand to appear in full admiral’s outfit

Prince Andrew was pictured in a black suit as he walked behind his elder brother Charles as they followed their father Philip's Land Rover hearse to the St George's Chapel.

Prince Harry won’t wear military uniform at Prince Philip’s funeral after being stripped of his honorary positions for quitting his royal duties

Prince Harry is expected not to wear a military uniform at his grandfather's funeral after being stripped of his honorary military positions for quitting his royal duties. The Queen stripped Harry of his role as Captain-General of the Royal Marines, which he took over from Prince Philip, after deciding to quit royal duties last year. The 36-year-old also lost two other honorary military positions. This means he cannot wear the uniforms at official events, and will likely don a suit and his medals to Prince Philip's funeral this coming Saturday. However, Prince Andrew is another male senior royal who will not wear the military uniform after the Duke of York stepped back from public life in 2019 over his friendship with the late convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
