Brouhaha over Harry’s beard. File this in the “Re­ally? Se­ri­ously?” folder: Prince Harry is be­ing bom­barded for break­ing mil­i­tary pro­to­col when he wore a beard at Re­mem­brance Day ser­vices in Lon­don. One mem­ber of the cav­alry told the Daily Mir­ror:

“Prince Harry is let­ting us all down. There’s no place for beards in the Queen’s cav­alry. He should have shaved it off for such an im­por­tant day.” While the peo­ple’s prince re­tired from ser­vice in 2015, he still wore his of­fi­cer’s uni­form. But is Harry re­ally do­ing any­thing wrong given he is no longer on ac­tive ser­vice? “I can con­firm that Prince Harry is no longer a serv­ing of­fi­cer and there­fore does not have to com­ply with any of these reg­u­la­tions,” a spokesper­son for the Min­istry of De­fence told the Daily Mail. Only on rare oc­ca­sions and with few ex­cep­tions can a serv­ing sol­dier wear a beard while on pa­rade.
