The brothers walked in solemn
solidarity during the procession, both wearing their impressive collection of
medals, with viewers spotting that Prince Harry wears more medals than Prince
William, despite his older brother being heir to the throne.
There’s a good reason though –
the Duke of Sussex actively served as a captain in the British Army, displaying
more medals due to his military service and proudly wore his Afghanistan
Service Medal on his chest.
The royal, who turns 38 on
Thursday, also bore the Golden, Diamond and Platinum Jubilee medals, as well as
the KCVO Star, representing the Royal Victorian Order, which recognizes
distinguished personal service to the monarch of the Commonwealth.
William, on the other hand,
displayed his Garter Star – the most senior order of knighthood in the British
honours system, outranked in precedence only by the Victoria Cross and the
William, as a future king, was
made Knight of the Garter in 2008 by his grandmother; coincidentally, St
George’s Chapel is also the mother church of the Garter Order.
Alongside the star, William
wore his Platinum and Golden Jubilee Medals, and his Diamond Jubilee Medal,
also presented to him by the Queen.
