Piers Morgan, 57, backed Prince Harry in an unexpected show of support after he had previously been banned from wearing military uniform to mourn the Queen. The TalkTV presenter has since suggested his call “demanding” a change to royal rules with King Charles III, in particular, taking note.
In a surprise show of support, Piers, who is often vocal about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, came to Harry’s defence when grieving his grandmother.
Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle were in the UK at the time of Her Majesty’s passing on Thursday, September 8 at the age of 96, with Harry travelling up to Balmoral, tragically arriving at the Scottish estate hours after her death.
The Duke of Sussex has been in attendance at key events over the past week, joining brother William and his wife Kate, alongside Meghan at Windsor Castle on Saturday, to speak to crowds and look at floral tributes left in memory of the Queen.
The royal also walked alongside William, Prince of Wales, as a Royal party walked behind Her Majesty’s coffin as it made its way from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall, where it is now lying in state until her funeral.
Over the past week, there has been much debate about whether Harry should be allowed to wear his military uniform.
A spokesperson of the Duke said: “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.”
Piers later declared on Twitter: “Harry should be allowed to wear his military uniform. He earned it.”
It has since been reported the Palace has acquiesced and Harry is expected to sport his uniform at tonight’s vigil for the Queen.
Taking to the micro-blogging site on September 15, Piers shared an article which read: “Harry is given green light to wear military uniform in special vigil for the Queen.”
He tweeted: “The King obviously read my column.”
In a follow-up post, another article read: “Prince Harry WILL be allowed to wear his military uniform at the Queen’s vigil.”
Piers commented: “As I demanded in my @TheSun column yesterday.”

Social media users reacted to the post, as his comments sparked a social media divide.
@mollymalone penned: “So he should wear his uniform like every other ex military person! What do you think of Edward wearing a uniform then when he never even finished his basic training, he hardly started!”
@BeattieJane gushed: “Probably because Harry stole the show yesterday given he stood head and shoulders above them looking supremely regal and the rest of the Royals in uniform looked like were guarding him.”
@RyanTurner commented: “All royals should be able to.”
@babe tweeted: “Piers what the hell! You change sides more than anyone!? You call him out then you support him? Talk about split personality!”
@KatieRosemum said: “He shouldn’t be wearing it at all.”
“I’m a great supporter of the Royal family but I do find their desire to dress up in military uniform a bit strange and rather eccentric. If King Charles is modernising the Monarchy perhaps he should ditch this slightly odd practice of wearing military garments,” added @davidwoo.
The Duke of Sussex was stripped of his military titles after giving up life as a working royal and moving to the United States with his wife, Meghan.
Meanwhile, the Queen’s grandchildren will stand vigil by her coffin in Westminster Hall tonight.
Prince William, the Prince of Wales, is expected to stand at the head of the coffin, with Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, at its foot – with the vigil expected to last around 15 minutes.
