The Duke of Sussex just celebrated his 38th birthday on September 15, in the midst of a painful moment for the family. Like his brother Prince William and other members of the royal family who hold military positions, Harry will wear his uniform.

The last time Harry wore his military uniform at an official function was in March 202) at the Mountbatten Music Festival. Harry was a captain general in the royal navy, among other titles he lost when he moved to California with his wife Meghan Markle in March 2020 and relinquished his responsibilities as a British royal.

Prince Harry is expected to arrive at his grandmother’s funeral on September 19 in military attire.
