PRINCE Andrew has been BANNED from wearing a military uniform at the Queen’s funeral, it is understood.
这 约克公爵 is instead expected to wear a morning suit, as he did for Prince Philip’s funeral, when Her Majesty is laid to rest.
The Queen’s funeral is set to take place on September 19, with officials pulling out all the stops to make it one of the most memorable events in Brit history.
All working royals will wear their military attire, but Andrew, who was stripped of his military titles last year, will not.
A palace source said: “As a non-working member of the 王室, the Duke of York will not wear uniform except as a special mark of respect for Her Majesty the Queen at the final vigil in Westminster Hall.”
Royals will be required to wear their uniforms at five events in total during the period of mourning.
These include the Service of Thanksgiving at St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh, the Procession to Westminster Hall and service of prayer and reflection as well as the Vigil at Westminster Hall.
They will also wear uniform for the State Funeral Service at Westminster Abbey a well as the Committal Service at St George’s Chapel Windsor.
Andrew wore a morning suit and tie for his father’s funeral last year – 后 the Queen reportedly stopped him wearing an Admiral’s uniform.
It was reported at the time the duke had told the Queen he wished to wear the prestigious uniform for the event – despite deferring the title after the Jeffrey Epstein sex scandal.
But there was said to be “serious Navy displeasure” at the prospect of 安德鲁 wearing an Admiral’s uniform for the occasion.
