The Queen mandates ‘normal dress’ for male guests attending funeral service

Royal Commentator Ian Woods says an “unusual aspect” of Prince Philip's funeral is the Queen decided male guests must wear “normal suits” - possibly because Prince Harry is no longer entitled to wear "traditional" military ceremonial dress.

“It’s a very difficult and unusual funeral,” he told Sky News.

“Another unusual aspect for it is that the Queen has decided that the male guests at the service will wear normal dress, normal suits instead of military uniform.

“There’s a lot of speculation that that’s because the only member of the senior royal family who would not have been allowed to wear the military uniform was Prince Harry.

“Because of course he’s no longer part of royal duties and therefore not entitled to the ceremonial dress of the military that other members of the royal family traditionally wear on these occasions.”
