    Prince Harry public ban creates online stir: ‘Humiliating’ | 7NEWS

    Prince Harry has received an outpouring of love online after some believe he was “humiliated” by being stripped of his military titles and banned from saluting his grandmother and wearing a uniform.

    In a sobering photograph from September 14, the royal family was seen behind the Queen’s coffin during the procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminister Hall, with all but Harry and Prince Andrew wearing uniforms and saluting the Queen.

    Instead, both Harry and Andrew had their heads bowed and arms firmly by their sides.

    Prince Andrew was forced to step back from public life amid the scandal over his friendship with the convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

    Prince Harry chose to move to America with his wife, Meghan Markle, and forfeit his royal title in 2020.

    Harry, who served for 10 years in the British army, rose to the rank of Captain and undertook two tours of Afghanistan.

    The Duke of Sussex continues his work for military personnel, having founded the Invictus Games, an international multi-sport event for wounded, injured and sick service personnel, both serving and veterans.

    “They really tried to humiliate PH,” one said, referring to Prince Harry.

    “First, which protocol says two of the Queen’s children who have never served in the Armed Forces get to wear Military Uniform complete with a dozen medals salute, but the combat Veteran is not allowed ‘cause he took his wife and child (to America),“ another said.

    “I find it ironic that the only man to see combat is forbidden from wearing his country’s uniform and saluting the Queen,” said another.

    Another agreed: “When a soldier serves two tours of Afghanistan he should be allowed to salute.

    “Prince Harry was refused to give his Queen his commander-in-chief his grandmother a royal salute. The other Royals have never seen war.”

    ‘It is military protocol’

    Others disagreed, recognising that, because Harry chose to step down as a working royal, and currently is not a serving member of the army, he is not entitled to salute.

    “Harry is not a serving member of the Armed Forces. So no longer permitted to wear uniform,” one said.

    “Stop blaming King Charles,” another wrote. “This is not his decision, it is military protocol, he is no longer serving as a member of the Military.”

    Harry addressed the formal decision that he wears his morning suit through all the key events on Tuesday.

    “Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex will wear a morning suit throughout events honouring his grandmother,” his press secretary confirmed.

    “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.”

    The Morning Show guest Joe Hildebrand labelled the words “the most passive-aggressive statement I’ve ever seen”.

    “It’s a little bit unbecoming I think,” Hildebrand said.

    “They want all the trappings and the privileges and honours and honorifics and the little trinkets that go with being a royal, but don’t actually want to do the solemn duty, they’d rather do the Netflix special.”

    Journalist Suzanne Mostyn then gave hosts Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies her own take on events.

    “Oh come on, they’re the most strategic couple in modern celebrity,” Mostyn said of Harry and Meghan.

    “It’s not like he’s not entitled to wear (the uniform) – although they are both very entitled – he’s just not allowed.

    “I think these two have got to disappear up their own fame and go back to Montecito, the seat of their own power.”
