Speaking on Lorraine today (Monday, April 12) with stand-in host Ranvir Singh, Russell explained: “You’ll see Charles and William in their ceremonial dress, their military uniforms.

“But of course, Harry and Prince Andrew have either stepped away or been forced to step away. So they will be just dressed in suits.”

The Queen stripped Prince Harry of all his official royal titles earlier this year. That included his title of Captain General of the Royal Marines.

Andrew, meanwhile, had to step down from royal duties over his friendship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

The Telegraph reported that, according to protocol, retired service personnel can wear their medals, but not their uniform, for official engagements after leaving the military.
