• Prince Harry is facing a final dilemma before the Mountbatten Festival of Music
  • The Duke of Sussex needs to choose his outfit for his farewell event
  • Meghan Markle will join Prince Harry in the UK next week 

Prince Harry is expected to attend his final military event as a royal at the Mountbatten Festival of Music next week.

While there, prior to the event, the Duke of Sussex is expected to make a huge decision as to what he should wear to the gathering.

Prince Harry served as captain-general of the Royal Marines. As such, he would have to decide on whether or not he would wear his full mess dress uniform or simply wear a suit.

Meghan Markle’s husband became captain-general of the Royal Marines in 2017. Prince Harry took over the important role of his grandfather, Prince Philip after the latter retired in the same year.

One year later, Prince Harry attended his first Mountbatten Festival in a plain civilian dinner jacket. Last year, he opted to wear the elite Navy unit’s full mess dress that featured a gold braid and medals.

While speaking with Express, one of the Duke of Sussex’s friends predicted that Prince Harry’s upcoming appearance will be an emotional one.

“It will be a very emotional moment for him and he is determined to do them proud, but he does not want the event to be all about him. The comradeship of other servicemen means a lot to him and he only wants to go out with his head high,” Prince Harry’s pal said.

The Duke of Sussex’s wife is also expected to join him at the Mountbatten Festival of Music as well as a slew of other royal engagements this month. After this, the royal couple would officially retreat into their private lives in Canada.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Markle also made headlines this week after it was revealed that their son, Archie, won’t be joining them on their upcoming trip to the United Kingdom.

While speaking on “Good Morning Britain,” former royal protection officer Ken Wharfe said that Archie is the biggest security risk for the couple. As such, he will be protected in Canada while his parents are in the UK.
