Prince Harry will wear his military uniform when he takes part in a special vigil for Queen Elizabeth II on Saturday, Page Six confirmed.

A source exclusively tells Page Six that Harry, who was previously told he couldn’t wear the military uniform, did not request the change.

“He was just prepared to wear whatever his grandmother planned. He is focused on honoring her and that’s it. If they want him in uniform, I have no reason to think she won’t,” says our source.

A fountain he told The Daily Mirror, who first reported the news on Thursday, that it was a “ridiculous situation” in the first place.

“The Duke of Sussex has served his country and is a highly respected member of the armed forces with all that he has done for veterans,” a source told the newspaper. “It is important that all of the Queen’s grandchildren feel welcome and comfortable as they mourn their beloved grandmother together.”

The queen’s eight grandchildren, including Prince William and Harry, are expected to stand on Saturday night for a 15-minute vigil by their grandmother’s coffin.

The Queen’s other grandchildren, including Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Zara and Peter Philips and Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn will also take part in the vigil at Westminster Hall.

It is unclear if Harry has also been given permission to wear his military uniform for Monday’s funeral.

Earlier this week it was announced that Harry and his disgraced uncle, Prince Andrew, would be banned from wearing their military uniforms at the queen’s funeral on September 19.

The 38-year-old Duke of Sussex was stripped of his military titles when he left royal life in 2020 and moved to California with his wife, Meghan Markle.

Prince Andrew was forced out of public life in 2019, after a disastrous BBC interview in which he defended his friendship with infamous financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and claimed he never met his sexual abuse accuser Virginia. Giuffre. He later shelled out millions of dollars to settle a civil lawsuit with Giuffre.

The centenary of the RAF, which was founded on 1 April 1918, was commemorated with a centenary parade featuring the unveiling of a new Queen's Color and a 100-aircraft fly-by over Buckingham Palace.

As Page Six exclusively reported, Harry, who has done two top-of-the-line tours in Afghanistan, was “saddened” by the decision.

“Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, will wear a suit tomorrow during events honoring his grandmother,” a spokesperson for the Sussexes said in a statement to Page Six on Tuesday.

“Your decade of military service is not determined by the uniform you wear and we respectfully ask that the focus remain on the life and legacy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.”
