Royal family members will not wear military uniforms at Prince Philip’s funeral

The senior members of the British monarchy will not be wearing the traditional military uniforms at Prince Philip's funeral at Windsor Castle this weekend on April 17, as per multiple media reports.

While it is a custom in royal family for those who hold military rank such as Prince Charles, Prince William, Princess Anne, and Prince Edward, to wear their uniforms at state occasions. However, now they will attend the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh in mourning dress instead, as per reports by ITV and the Daily Mail.

While Buckingham Palace has yet to comment on the clothing decision, the news comes as questions started making rounds regarding what Prince Harry would wear to the service. For the unversed, Prince Harry was stripped of his honorary military titles as part of his and Meghan Markle's official exit from their duties as senior members of the royal family.

Before Megxit, Harry, who served in the British Army for a decade, lost his three honorary military titles (Captain General of the Royal Marines, Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Honington and Commodore-in-Chief, Small Ships and Diving, Royal Naval Command).

On Sunday, Harry returned to the U.K. for the first time in over a year to attend his grandfather Prince Philip's funeral on Saturday.
