Page Six has confirmed that Prince Harry will be dressed in his
military uniform when he attends a special vigil for Queen Elizabeth II on
September 17, 2022.  

According to Page Six, Prince Harry, who was originally denied
permission to wear military uniforms, has now been granted that privilege. 

The Queen’s eight grandchildren, including Harry and his brother
Prince William, will stand in silence for a 15-minute vigil alongside her
coffin on Saturday evening.

Royal officials are said to have actively managed the confusion
after it was revealed that his disgraced uncle Prince Andrew, who is no longer
a working royal, had been given special authorization to wear his uniform at a
vigil over the Queen’s coffin attended by her four children on September 16,
despite being barred from doing so at previous ceremonial events.

grandchildren all feel welcome and at ease as they grieve their beloved grandmother

Other grandchildren of the Queen, including Princesses Beatrice
and Eugenie, Zara and Peter Philips, and Lady Louise and James, Viscount
Severn, are expected to join the guard of honour tomorrow evening.
