Royal Family LIVE: Harry shamed as grieving Queen forced to end tradition - 'Entitled!'

Prince Harry 'relieved' for royal family reunion says Nicholl

The Queen has said no royals will wear their military uniform for the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral on Saturday. The move came after Prince Harry was facing the humiliating prospect of being the only male royal dressed in a suit - as he has recently been stripped of his honorary military titles and can no longer wear ceremonial uniform at official events. Royal fans have reacted furiously to the news, and blamed Harry for forcing the Queen's hand.

Writing on Twitter, one person said: "I think it’s completely wrong that our future kings might not wear military uniform to honour Prince Philip.

"It is what the Duke of Edinburgh would have expected.

"He was always proud to wear his own dress uniforms.

"All this to coddle Harry the Civilian?!"

Another person wrote: "It's precisely because they mollycoddle Harry that we are in this position.

"Harry has never faced consequences for his actions, which is why he's entitled, petulant and jealous. "Continually bending to Harry means he'll continue in the same vein, actions should have consequences."

A third said: "Queen should stop giving in to Harry and he would not be on his own Andrew would had being with him not fair on other Queen need to stand up to them Philip would had."

Prince Andrew, who stepped down from duties in 2019, had also asked to wear admiral uniform.

But the new move to ban military attire, as revealed by The Sun, will see his wish rejected.

Instead, senior male royals will wear suits and ties.

A military source told the newspaper: “It’s the most eloquent solution to the problem.”
