Previously, the British prince as a former soldier would wear a uniform that belongs to such events, but that is no longer allowed without his titles. Harry lost his titles after he and his wife announced that they no longer wanted to be ‘senior royals’.
The prince presented medals to five soldiers involved in American missions at the gala. Harry also gave a speech about his own time in the army. The prince was twice deployed as a soldier to Afghanistan.
“My experience in the military has made me who I am today, and I will always be grateful for the people I served with,” the prince said. “But in the war you also see and experience things that you hope no one would have to do.”
