PRINCE Harry will be banned from wearing military uniform when he dishes out awards to forces heroes next week.
The war veteran — who served two tours in Afghanistan — will help hand out five prizes on board a warship in New York.
But he can no longer wear uniform as he was stripped of his honorary military titles when he quit royal duty for California.
Harry will instead have to wear black tie but can pin his four medals on his suit at the gala a day before Veterans Day.
Other war veterans and servicemen on the aircraft carrier are likely to be in full regalia.
The Royal Family all agreed to wear morning suits to “spare Harry’s blushes” at the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral in April.
He was also pictured in a blue suit and medals last November when he laid flowers at the Los Angeles National Cemetery.
Harry’s request for a wreath to be laid at the Cenotaph in London last year was rejected.
Despite his army record, he lost three honorary military titles including his treasured post as Captain General of the Royal Marines and is now a “civilian”.
Harry will celebrate five service members, veterans and military families living with “the invisible wounds of war”.
The Salute to Freedom gala takes place on a warship at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum on November 10.
A spokesman for the duke did not want to comment.
