Prince William’s military uniform featured the initials “ER” for “Elizabeth Regina,” meaning “Queen Elizabeth” in Latin, on the shoulder.
Prince William served in the Royal Air Force for seven and a half years before retiring to focus on his royal duties.
Prince Harry served in the British Army for 10 years but was stripped of military titles in 2020 after he and Meghan Markle decided to step back from royal life. He wore a morning suit instead of military attire for all funeral events except for Saturday when he stood guard at the Queen’s coffin alongside William and his six cousins.
According to Roya Nikkhah, royal editor for The Sunday Times, the uniform Harry wore on Saturday at Westminster Abbey was given back to him earlier in the day with the “ER” initials for Queen Elizabeth missing. Representatives for the Duke of Sussex and Buckingham Palace did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
