The Queen “Put your foot down” to the will of Prince Andrew to appear at his father’s funeral in admiral’s uniform.

The monarch decreed that none of the royal guests be in military attire after their middle son provoked a concussion by ordering his tailor to prepare his uniform to a degree he had never technically, the Daily Mail said.

The Duke of York, who served in the Navy and fought in the Falklands War, left the service as a commander in 2005. Under a Navy policy, he received a promotion every five years which meant he was promoted to honorary captain in 2005, rear admiral in 2010 and vice admiral in 2015.

He was due to be admired last year on his 60th birthday, but was postponed until his return to his first-ever royal duties.

Andrew has taken a back seat in the last year since Disastrous TV interview on his relationship with the accused pedophile and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. His appearance at the funeral and a public tribute he paid to his father last week are the most visible he has been in more than a year.

British Prince Andrew, Duke of York, British Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, British Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, (back-L), Peter Phillips and British Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, British Earl of Snowdon and Vice Admiral Timothy Laurence marched behind the chest during the ceremonial funeral procession of British Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle in Windsor, west London, on 17 April 2021.

Prince Andrew walked behind Philip’s Land Rover van on Saturday in a black morning dress, as did his brother, Prince Charles, and grandchildren, Prince William and Prince Harry.

The Queens decree was also seen as sparking Harry embarrassment after he stepped down from his royal duties last year and left all his ceremonial ranks.
