All eight of Queen Elizabeth’s grandchildren will stand around the coffin at a vigil in her honor on Saturday.
In fact, King Charles will finally allow Harry to wear his military uniform tomorrow, as the British press comments. It is seen as the latest move of reconciliation between the king and his son, whose relationship has been strained since Harry left Britain, abandoning the royal family.
As seen in the image published by the Daily Mail, William and Harry will stand on their feet and head, respectively, at the special 15-minute vigil on Saturday night. “It’s something everyone wanted to do,” royal sources claim.
The Prince of Wales, 40, will be joined by Zara Tindall, 41, and Peter Phillips, 44. The Duke of Sussex, 38, will be flanked by Princesses Beatrice, 34, and Eugenia, 32, with Lady Louise, 18, and James, 14, in the middle of the coffin.

However, spouses such as the Princess of Wales, Meghan Markle and Mike Tyndall will not be attending the vigil, along with Queen Elizabeth’s grandchildren who will be wearing specific outfits.
Prince Andrew also in uniform at the vigil
In fact, as the Daily Mail points out, Prince Andrew, who also stepped down from royal duties after the sex scandal with Jeffrey Epstein, is set to take special leave for Friday night, when the Queen’s four children will have another vigil.
He will be joined by King Charles, Princess Anne and Prince Edward. The exception was made for the Duke of York to wear uniform for the vigil at Westminster Hall as a “final mark of respect” for his mother.
He is expected to wear the full military uniform of a Navy Vice Admiral, the only military rank he still holds.
