The Royal family has always had a strong connection to the Armed Forces, especially the men. Prince Philip served in the British Navy, as did Prince Charles, revealed ET Online.com on the 28th of March 2018.

Prince William served in the Royal Air Force as a helicopter pilot, and Prince Harry served in the British Army for ten years, rising to the rank of Captain and did two service tours in Afghanistan.

Prince Harry has continued to work in support of his fellow servicemen. He has drawn attention to the plight of men and women wounded in combat and their struggle to adapt to civilian life after serious injury.

A Kensington Palace communication has revealed that 250 members of the Armed Forces will perform ceremonial duties at the wedding on the 19th of May 2018.

At the chapel, the staircase leading to St George's will be flanked by the Queen's Household Cavalry. The State Trumpeters will hail the newlyweds, and a Captain’s Escort will be saluting them.

In homage to the British armed forces, Prince Harry is expected to wear his military uniform at his wedding just as his brother, Prince William, did at his 2011 nuptials to Kate Middleton, and his father, as well as his grandfather at their own weddings.
