Piers Morgan has said that Prince Harry ‘should be allowed’ to wear his military uniform at the Queen’s funeral on Monday. 

The journalist, 57, took to Twitter and tweeted to his 7.9 million followers: “Harry should be allowed to wear his military uniform. He earned it.”

This was in response to CNN correspondent Max Foster, who said on the platform: “Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex will wear a morning suit throughout events honouring 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.”

In a follow-up, it added: “- spokesperson for The Duke of Sussex.”

Fans were quick to take to the comments and say that they agreed with Morgan that Prince Harry should have been allowed to wear his military uniform.

One responded: “I totally agree as well.”

“What Piers said,” a second commented.

A third weighed in, adding: “He served in the army, isn’t he allowed to wear it because of his service?”

However, others disagreed and said that as the Duke of Sussex no longer carries out his royal duties it wouldn’t be appropriate.

“He did earn it, but then he surrendered it when he left his duties…,” one tweeted.

Another added: “Totally disagree Piers on this issue.”

“Sadly he kicked his legacy into touch, along with his military uniform,” someone else said.

Morgan’s tweet comes after it was reported by The Sun that Prince Harry will have to wear civilian clothing when walking behind his grandmother’s coffin.

Before stepping down from his royal duties two years ago, the Duke had served in the British Army for a decade and had done two tours of Afghanistan.

So as a former major, this means Prince Harry would have been entitled to wear his Blues and Royals to any official event.
