Here's What the Royal Family Will Wear to Queen Elizabeth II's Funeral – POPSUGAR

Buckingham Palace has released official details for Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral, which will take place on Monday, Sept. 19, at Westminster Abbey, followed by a committal service at St. George’s Chapel. The statement includes in-depth information about the procession and attendees, who will wear all black, according to Debrett’s, an authority on British society. “Ladies wear black knee-length dresses, or coats, black hats, and may also wear face-covering veils,” the publication states.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry’s outfit has been widely discussed, as he is now being permitted to wear his military uniform, despite being stripped of royal titles in 2020, when he and wife Meghan Markle stepped away from the royal family. Harry served in the British army for 10 years, and he did wear his military medals while walking in the procession alongside his brother, Prince William, on Sept. 14.
Harry’s spokesperson released a statement to E! News regarding his attire: “Prince Harry The Duke of Sussex will wear a morning suit throughout events honoring his grandmother. His decade of military service is not determined by the uniform he wears and we respectfully ask that focus remain on the life and legacy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.” However, given recent updates, it seems he may choose to dress in full uniform at the state funeral, having worn it last in 2020 at the Mountbatten Music Festival.
Prince Andrew, who was stripped of royal military titles in 2022 following a lawsuit issued against him for sexual assault, was permitted to wear his own military uniform for the queen’s vigil only, according to The Telegraph.
When the late Duke of Edinburgh passed away in April 2021, men wore black morning coats with their medals to the funeral, rather than military uniforms.
Ahead, see what Prince Harry and Markle wore to pay their respects during an intimate walk at Windsor Castle on Sept. 10 and review Harry’s last appearance in his military outfit in 2020. Then, see how Markle and Kate Middleton paid tribute to the monarch with their jewelry at Westminster Hall on Sept. 14.
