Why was Prince Harry not wearing military uniform at Queen's procession

LONDON, Sept 15: King Charles III's second son Prince Harry was not in military uniform at the Queen's procession to Westminster.

Prince Harry and Prince Andrew, Queen's second son, were not wearing and will not wear military uniform at Queen's funeral events as the royal protocol doesn't allow. Prince Harry will wear only a mourning suit at all the events.

Prince Andrew can wear military uniform on ceremonial occasions in certain exceptional cases.

King Charles III, his sister Princess Anne and his youngest brother Prince Edward and his elder son Prince William, who is now the heir to the throne, wore military uniform at the service of thanksgiving at St. Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh on Monday and during Wednesday's procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall, reported US media.

Peter Phillips, son of Princess Anne, was also not wearing a uniform during Wednesday's procession. He is not a working royal and has not served in the military.

Prince Andrew served in the Royal Navy for 22 years as a helicopter pilot and instructor and then as a commander of a naval ship. He took part in the Falklands War. While he left active service with the Royal Navy in July 2001, he continued to wear uniform during ceremonial events as a working royal because of his honorary titles.

Earlier this year, Prince Andrew was stripped of his military titles and charities following a sexual abuse case. He had in 2019 stepped back from his royal duties over the issue.

Prince Harry served in the British Army for 10 years. He completed two tours of Afghanistan, achieved the rank of captain in 2011 and qualified as an Apache Aircraft commander. Captain Harry Wales, as he was known in the Army, retired from the Army in 2015.

He too continued to wear his uniform while attending royal ceremonies but stopped wearing a uniform after stepping back from his royal duties in 2020 following differences in the royal household.

King Charles III served with the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force for six years, but he never took part in an active war. Prince William served for more than seven years as a search and rescue pilot.

Princess Anne and Prince Edward never served in the military, but both hold honorary titles.

It may also be noted here that unlike in the US, where veterans often wear uniforms for special occasions, retired British military personnel are not allowed to wear uniform unless they are in an honorary appointment and had been authorized to wear one. However, they wear their military medals pinned to civilian clothes.-CNN
