A spokesperson for Prince Harry also released a statement confirming that he will be wearing his mourning suit and said that he wants the focus to be on his grandmother and not on what he wears.

But according to Page Six, there was a sudden change in the dress code for Prince Harry and his uncle Prince Andrew. Even though the two no longer work for the royal family, the monarch wants them to wear their military uniforms since they served for years.

“At the king’s request, they will both be in uniform,” a spokesperson confirmed ahead of two vigils for the queen.

Another source stressed that Prince Harry was not the one who requested for changes to be made in his attire.

“He was simply prepared to wear whatever his grandmother made plans for. He’s focused on honoring her and that’s it. If they’d like him in uniform, I have no reason to think that he won’t oblige,” the source said.

On Friday, the Duke of York was photographed standing in front of the queen’s coffin in his military uniform.
