King Charles III gave permission for his ex-royal son Prince Harry and Charles’ disgraced brother Prince Andrew to wear military uniforms during their upcoming vigils for Queen Elizabeth II.

“At the king’s request, they will both be in uniform,” a Kensington Palace source told the Telegraph on Friday ahead of two vigils for the late monarch.

Harry, 38, had previously been barred from wearing his military uniform. The Duke of Sussex was stripped of his military titles when he quit royal life in 2020 and moved to California with his wife, Meghan Markle.

A source told the Daily Mirror that it was a “ludicrous situation” given that the prince served 10 years in the army, including two active tours of Afghanistan, and established the Invictus Games, an international sporting event for wounded servicemen and -women.

Page Six exclusively reported on Thursday that Prince Harry did not request the change.

“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,” our source said.
