The flag hoisting is reserved for the birthdays of the following people:
- The Sovereign (the Queen)
- The Sovereign's Consort (Prince Philip)
- The Sovereign's children (Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and Princess Anne)
- The wives of the Sovereign's children (Camilla and Sophie)
- The eldest son of the Prince of Wales (Prince William)
- The wife of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales and his spouse (Kate)

Harry is not the Sovereign's son or the Prince of Wales' eldest son, so his birthday is not in the list.
When Prince Charles becomes King, that will automatically change.

Thank you for clearing that up - it was what i imagined would be the case and that it would change when Charles becomes King. So when that day comes there will be a big decrease in the number of flag days - Charles, Camilla, William, Kate, their first child, Harry and his future wife

When Charles is King the flags won't be raised for Andrew, Edward, Sophie or Anne anymore either.

When William is King, Harry will once again not have the flag raised.

It will only be done when he is the son of the monarch. If Charles predeceases The Queen then Harry will never be in that position.

You are welcome.
When Charles is King, the flags will be raised for the King (Charles), the Queen (Camilla), the Sovereign's children (William and Harry) and their wives (Kate and Harry's future wife), as well as William's eldest son (or possibly, given the impeding changes, his eldest child regardless of gender).

I would think that Charles will let the flag continue for his brothers and sister because they have been all their lives. Was there still a flag day for Princess Margaret once QE2 accended?

It appears so, as her birthday wasn't removed from the regulations in Northern Ireland until 2002.

I also found a snippet from a book that listed the Duke of Gloucester's birthday as a flag day in 1957, 21 years after George V died. ETA: They were still flying on his birthday in 1969, as they had to be lowered when the Queen ordered them to half staff that day to mark President Eisenhower's death.

Thank you wbenson. I figured such. Once you are added, it should be for life. I think BRF in general is more respectful of time than title then what most give them credit for. I mean Princess Alice, etc.
