Prince Philip funeral news – No royals in military uniform ‘to avoid embarrassing Harry and Andrew’, Queen decides


THE Queen has saved Prince Harry dress code embarrassment by banning military uniforms at Prince Philip’s funeral.

The Duke of Sussex who had been stripped of his military ranks faced the humiliating prospect of being the only senior male in the royal family wearing civvies.

As a result the Queen is understood to have personally stepped in and in a huge break with tradition, ban anybody from wearing uniforms and insist on all men wearing traditional suits instead.

It comes as Kate Middleton paid tribute to Prince Philip by sharing a sweet photograph of the Queen and her late husband surrounded by their great grandchildren.

The family photo was taken by the Duchess at Balmoral Castle in 2018 and shows Prince Philip looking very relaxed with the children.

The picture was shared on the official Royal Family Twitter account with the caption: “The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh surrounded by seven of their great-grandchildren at Balmoral Castle in 2018.”

And the copyright was attributed to keen photographer the Duchess of Cambridge.

Cradled in the arms of the Queen is Prince Louis – a rare image of the monarch holding one of her great-grandchildren.
