Banished from the military uniform
The second son of the late queen is in fact involved in the sexual abuse scandal linked to the network of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. In August 2021, an American woman, Virgine Giuffre, accused him of sexual assault when he was only 17. As soon as this testimony was revealed, the case shocked the UK and since then many Brits have called for his exclusion from the royal family.
Queen Elizabeth II decided in January 2022 to deprive him of his royal titles and military affiliations. Also for this reason the Duke of York was dressed differently during the procession. He was not in fact allowed to wear a military uniform, opting for a black suit.
The prince will have to appear in civilian clothes at all other public events held to mourn his mother, although an exception will be made out of respect for the queen at the final vigil at Westminster Hall.
