Queen Elizabeth II: Prince Harry wore uniform at the ceremony
Prince Harry wore military uniform to the ceremony at Westminster Hall on Saturday night along with other grandchildren of Queen Elizabeth II, after he was given special permission to do so.
At King Charles III’s request, Buckingham Palace said Prince Harry will wear a military uniform – the first time he has done so since 2020 when he gave up his working royal life and moved to California with his wife Megan, Female Duke of Sussex.
Prince Harry has worn plain clothes at public events since the Queen’s death, including as he walked behind her coffin during Wednesday’s procession.
The Duke of Sussex, who has made two tours in Afghanistan, joined his brother, Prince William, in military uniform at the vigil.
During the vigil, Prince Harry stood at the foot of the coffin, with his brother at the head.
Other grandchildren in attendance included Princess Beatrice and Eugenie, Zara Tindall, Peter Phillips, Lady Louise Windsor, and James, Viscount Severn. Cousins are dressed in black.
They stood on the steps below the coffin, turned away and bowed their heads in silence.
On Friday evening, the Queen’s children, including the King, held a vigil at her casket, where it lies undisturbed at Westminster Hall.
The Queen’s state of rest continues until Monday morning, when the coffin will be moved to Westminster Abbey for a funeral after 10 days of national mourning for Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.
