Harry offered olive branch by Charles with touching uniform request for vigil

PRINCE William will lead the Queen’s grandchildren in a poignant vigil at her coffin tomorrow night – with Prince Harry allowed to wear military uniform.

The Prince of Wales will stand at the head of the catafalque in Westminster Hall after becoming first in line to the throne.

Prince Harry will be at the foot of the coffin – with both brothers in military uniform at King Charles’ request.

He will be flanked by Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, while William will have Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips either side.


It comes as…


Lady Louise and Viscount Severn will stand at the middle of the coffin during the powerful 15 minute vigil.

The rest of the royal grandchildren will be wearing morning coats and dark formal dress with decorations, the Palace said.

Princess Kate and Meghan Markle will not feature in the sombre occasion as spouses are not attending.

It is understood the eight grandchildren were keen to pay their respects – as their parents are doing tonight in their own vigil.

There was speculation Harry, who served two tours of Afghanistan, would be blocked from wearing a military uniform as he is no longer a senior royal.

But The Sun confirmed he has been granted special permission for the period of reflection.

The ruling was not a U-turn but a “one-off” decision by the King as a mark of respect for the late monarch.

An insider said: “The King invited the Queen’s grand- children to mount a vigil and Harry can wear his uniform.”

The King, Princess AnnePrince Andrew and Prince Edward will stand guard over Her Majesty tonight in a tradition known as Vigil of the Princes.

It comes as thousands continue to queue for hours today to file past the Queen’s coffin.

Entry to the line has now been paused for at least six hours after Southwark Park reached its capacity.

Her Majesty will be laid to rest in a state funeral on Monday to mark her incredible 70 years of service.
