Harry, Duke of Sussex, will be barred from wearing his military uniform after he agreed to step back from his armed forces appointments.
Retired service personnel can wear their medals – but not their uniform – at official engagements once they have left the military.
Prince Harry was commissioned in 2006 and left the Army in 2015, having undergone two operational tours of Afghanistan twice in that time. In the Army he was known as ‘Captain Wales’.
But under the terms of the deal to step away from Royal duties, he will give up all military appointments. The announcement was made by Buckingham Palace on Saturday night.
His resignation from three honorary roles in the military will prevent him wearing uniform at public events such Trooping the Colour and Remembrance Sunday at the cenotaph.
