All out of love for your favorite grandson …
The debate in the royal family is said to have gone back and forth for several days. Now the Queen (94) spoke a word of strength.
None of the 30 mourners will be wearing a uniform at Prince Philip’s († 99) funeral tomorrow! Although her consort the late prince wanted a military-style burial.
Reason for decision: Prince Harry (34).
Royal expert Phil Dampier (63) for BILD: “Harry wanted to wear a uniform at the funeral – which he went up to the altar at the wedding with Megan in 2018. That was not possible because his military title was withdrawn when he left. His medals are in a suit only. This applies now to everyone. “
dilemma! Because other family members do not want to do without a uniform.
Above all: the scandal of Prince Andrew (61), who was forced to resign from his royal duties in 2019 due to his proximity to sexual perpetrator Jeffrey Epstein (66). Since Andrew is an honorary deputy admiral in the Royal Navy, he wanted to appear in uniform.
They are all in uniform, but one? Shame on Harry, my best grandson! This would make the rift running through the royal family very apparent. Dambier: “The Queen desperately needs to use the funeral as an opportunity for a family reunion after Megxit and the consequences of meeting Harry and Meghan.”
It’s still a bitter decision for other family members. Because now one of Prince Consort’s last desires is being ignored – the conscious “man of the century” who fought in World War II.
The royal expert: “Philip always called himself a sailor on extended vacation from the shore. But if anyone understood the Queen’s decision it would be him.”
From the royal family photo album
Here we see Prince Philip (99) in private – through the eyes of his family!

They show the Duke of Edinburgh as everyone wants to be remembered: as a loving, family-oriented boss.
Eugenie, 31, writes wholeheartedly: “I will remember you in your children, grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren … Thank you for your love … especially to Grandma, whom we will take care of for you.”
