What uniform is Edward wearing there?
Can he wear it every time or it's just a one-time kind of thing?
As far as I know he didn't finish his military service but it could be an honorary appointment.

Thanks in advance

Yes all royals and non-royals can wear honorary military appointed uniforms at state events and where it says on the invitation. e.g wedding and funerals and royal garden parties etc.

All ranks have to ask permission to wear their dress uniforms at weddings, funerals etc, except higher ranking officers and of course the royals.
I can't think of any non royals who have been given honorary military ranks and would therefore be entitled to wear a military uniform.

However, as Harry is not in the mounted regiment, he will not be seen, (unless he transfers), in a ceremonial uniform, for some time.
It is only the mounted troop that wears the helmet with the plume.

He will be in an ordinary 'No. 1 dress' uniform, not Mounted Troop Ceremonial uniform.
Tailored Jacket and Trousers.
Blue cap with scarlet band & piping.
Red Lanyard.
Reddish Tie with Navy stripe.
If he is at the Trooping of the Colour parade. :)

In The DRF as of December 2014:

QMII is the formal commander in chief, but holds no rank. (She has basic military training from being in the Women's Auxiliary Corps, which no longer exists)
Prince Henrik is general and admiral a la suite in the army, air force and navy.
Frederik is colonel in the army and air force and full captain/commodore in the navy.
Joachim is lieutenant colonel in the army.
Mary is lieutenant in the Army Home Guard
our Marie is the equivalent of lieutenant in the civil defence.

With his accession to the throne, the (then) Prince of Orange laid down all his military offices. According to the Netherlands Constitution, the Government comprises of the King and the Ministers. It is not allowed that active military are part of the Government. Reason: military are under supreme command of the Government. It is not logic that the same military are part of a body they are subservient to.

Since then the King, as every former military officer has the right, wears an uniform when it is about an engagement in a military setting. The King has no rank: he is The King. For him a "royal distinctive" was made, showing the orb, the sceptre and the sword-of-state in miniature: see picture. The King with this distinctive: see picture.
