Working members of the Royal Family will wear military uniforms during this period of mourning for the Queen when they attend five ceremonial events.

These are the Thanksgiving service at St Giles’ Cathedral, Edinburgh, the procession to Westminster Hall and the service of prayer and reflection, the Vigil at Westminster Hall, the state funeral at Westminster Abbey and the Committal Service at St George’s Chapel Windsor.
