PRINCE Harry has been banned from wearing his military uniform when he mourns the Queen but Prince Andrew will be allowed. 

Andrew will be able to wear his armed forces uniform at Wednesday’s lying-in-state vigil “as a special mark of respect” for the Queen. 

However, he is banned from wearing it at all other events over the next few days and will be in civilian dress for most official events, including the Queen’s funeral. 

Only working royals – which neither Harry nor Andrew are – are permitted to dress in uniform at five ceremonial occasions.

One of those took place on Monday at a ceremony at St Giles’ Cathedral. 

A 22-year-old was arrested after shouting abuse at Andrew as the Queen's funeral cortege made its way along the royal mile. 

The exception has been made for Prince Andrew for when he stands guard around the Queen’s coffin during the Vigil of the Princes on Wednesday. 

Royal journalist Omid Scobie tweeted: “I understand that, unlike Prince Andrew, Prince Harry will NOT be allowed to wear uniform at the final vigil in Westminster Hall.”

He will be joined by the Queen’s other children at the proceedings. 

Both Andrew and Harry will be barred from wearing military attire during the coffin’s procession to Westminster Hall, the funeral in Westminster Abbey, and the committal service in Windsor.
