Royal Family latest: Get over it! Andrew & Harry told to stop ‘squabbling’ for Queen | Royal | News


With the Queen facing one of the most painful moments of her life, one commentator has likened Harry and Andrew’s demands to something like the Kardashians. Ahead of the funeral on Saturday, the Queen made the decision to ban military dress in order to show a united front to the world. Despite being stripped of his military titles, Harry wanted to wear his Blues and Royals dress to the funeral. 

Although not stripped of his military titles, Andrew had requested to wear his Navy uniform. 

However, in order for the family to be united, the Queen made the decision for all royals to wear morning suits on Saturday. 

Commenting on the row over military uniform, royal commentator Polly Hudson wrote in the Daily Mirror: “Even the Queen must have been stifling an eye-roll, struggling to hold in a ‘Really?’ when she was dragged into a petty row about outfits this week.

“Squabbling over who wears what to a funeral is more what you’d expect from the Kardashians rather than the Windsors. And yet, here one is.

“She faces the ordeal of a public funeral when surely, if she had any choice in the matter, common sense decrees that she would prefer to say goodbye to Prince Phillip in private, without the eyes of the world on her.

“However, duty before self. And so, as always, on she will undoubtedly go.”

After being stripped of his military titles, Harry would’ve been the only royal not wearing a uniform at the funeral. 

Harry returned to the UK last weekend for the first time since the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey. 

Ahead of the funeral, both he and William held a call to attempt to smooth relations.

Both Princes Andrew and Harry had asked to wear military dress at the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral. 

However, the Queen made the decision to wear morning dress in order to present a unified front. 

Commenting on the issues, royal commentator Polly Hudson wrote in the Daily Mirror: “Even the Queen must have been stifling an eye-roll, struggling to hold in a ‘Really?’ when she was dragged into a petty row about outfits this week.

“Squabbling over who wears what to a funeral is more what you’d expect from the Kardashians rather than the Windsors. And yet, here one is.

“The Queen has just lost her husband of 73 years and was back at work four days later.

“She faces the ordeal of a public funeral when surely, if she had any choice in the matter, common sense decrees that she would prefer to say goodbye to Prince Phillip in private, without the eyes of the world on her.”
