After a few days of hemming and hawing from Buckingham Palace over protocol, they have reversed their decision to not let Prince Harry wear a military uniform when he stands for Queen Elizabeth II’s final public vigil on Saturday.

The Palace was initially hesitant to allow it because Harry and his wife Meghan Markle decided to step away from being “working royals” over a year ago.

Harry was allowed to walk in uniform because of a special request by his father King Charles III, formerly Prince Charles. Prince William will stand at the head of the coffin while Harry will stand at the foot for a fifteen minute vigil in Westminster Hall.

Other royals attending the vigil will be her other grandchildren who are: Zara Tindall, Peter Phillips, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise, and James Viscount Severn. Their wardrobe will simply be morning coats and dark dresses.
