As the British royal family prepares to lay Prince Philip to rest, an uproar involving Prince Andrew has reportedly broken out behind palace doors.
It is reported the Duke of York is demanding he be allowed to wear the military uniform of an Admiral to his father’s funeral, according to the Daily Mail UK.
Andrew stepped back from his position as senior royal in 2019 over his friendship with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
Despite the Epstein scandal, the Queen is yet to strip Prince Andrew of his military honours.
In 2015, Andrew was made an honorary Vice-Admiral in the Royal Navy. He was reportedly set to be elevated to Admiral on his 60th birthday last year. However, he offered to wait until he cleared his name and returned to public life.
The Queen is set to make a decision over her son’s request within the next day.
It is said Prince Charles, Prince Edward and Princess Anne will all be donning military dress at the funeral.
Prince William is also said to be dressing in military garb.
However, it is yet to be known whether his brother, Prince Harry, will follow suit.
The Duke of Sussex was stripped of his military titles after quitting royal life to move with his wife, Meghan Markle, to the US.
In line with royal rules, Harry is likely to be only allowed to wear a morning suit with medals, the media outlet said.
Buckingham Palace has declined to comment on the matter.
