Of course he will wear a military uniform. The main question is which one. Will he wear the one he is currently entitled to or will he receive some kind of higher honorary position that will require him (per the queen's order) to wear a different one. I would prefer that, as I am not a fan of his current one (because of the position of the 'sash'), but Harry probably prefers the uniform that he has been wearing and is the one he 'earned'.

Oh please, William has missed plenty of major events including the BAFTAs for no apparent reason. Him missing the Cup Finals for his ONLY brother's wedding is hardly a thing and I can guarantee the players will not care on whit either way nor will those watching the game. William is hardly being put in a tough spot. Not everything is about the Cambridges and their schedule.

It is fairly obvious they are already trying to work with his brother by not having their wedding while Kate is pregnant. At some point, someone will be inconvenienced when you are coordinating the schedules of this many "important" and "busy" people. This is the only weekend in May that works. We know this decision was not made in a vacuum but included all the royal households (BP, KP, CH), their families, the security forces and the government.

I think he'd prefer his current one. Just because his military career and subsequent work he has done with veterans are such an important part of him.

Now the question is whether he'll shave that beard given the stink it caused last time he wore his uniforms. Even though he is retired from the military.

They don't call it the fail for nothing. I'm sure both the royals and the FA will coordinate their schedules. How long does the wedding take? I think because it will be smaller and more intimate it won't take long. I say the more the merrier. The FA cup involves the professional leagues? its not about different countries??

We will see Harry wearing his wedding band? Prince Charles and William don't wear theirs. I hope Harry does not do what they do.

I doubt there will be that much of a conflict in terms of televising. Weddings ceremonies are typically earlier in the day. I'm sure they can swing that to accommodate the television slots. I'm just imagining the guys at the evening party checking their phones all the time though.

Both he and William went to the World Cup in South Africa as well and he also went to Brazil for the World Cup matches there. He is a much bigger fan of football than William.

All this day does is force William to chose between his brother and one of his 'must-do' events - present the medals at the end of the game. He will chose his brother's wedding of course but he should never have been put in that situation.

In England FA cup final is like Superbowl final in the US or grandfinal day/s here in Australia and are days that half-intelligent men make sure they don't have that as their wedding day.
I think this is being a bit overly dramatic. To say William felt "forced" to choose between the two is to suggest the two things are equal or close to being equal. But really, there's no comparison between a sibling's wedding and a football game. I highly doubt William was even the least bit upset about this, though frankly, his desires aren't most important here. It's the most important day of his brother's life and he should have no problem arranging his schedule to suit his brother's wishes.

I'm afraid you massively overestimate the pull of the 'Cup Final' these days... Football is now a permanent feature in British life, and [unlike 30/40/50 years past] doesn't stop for an extended Summer break... Then it was a huge 'set piece' occasion, now it is merely one of many, that drone on and on throughout the year..

Of course there are obsessives who CANNOT miss it, but for the majority of ordinary fans, there is 'catch up' on TV, and large numbers of other ways to see it, [again] very different from the past, when if you missed it live on TV, it was GONE..

I thought Charles does wear his behind his signet?

William stated from the beginning he wouldn't wear one. I don;t think he even had one made.

It’s still the biggest match in the biggest sport. Wembley Stadium will be packed with people arriving hours before start time.

The people who want to watch the wedding can and the people gearing up to watch the match are free to do so.

Well I guess they should blame the government for not granting a bank holiday so it could be on Friday instead of Saturday.

I'm not getting the controversy, seems to be something for everybody.

I really don't see a problem with William not wearing a ring. He doesn't care to wear it, and his wife has no issues with it.

But with Harry, I feel like he's the type to want to wear a wedding ring.

Again, it's up against Horse Show and Trooping, which causes logistic issues. I think football is the easiest to work around here.

I don’t disagree plus Catherine’s pregnancy is taken into account. The only other option is a summer wedding and I don’t think Meghan’s visa would allow allow that

Bottom line here is it's not going to 100% convenient for 100% of the people they want to accommodate. But the bigger picture here is that it's a joyous occasion during a bleak time in the world. Can't we just be happy and not nitpick at small details?

Well, I would be surprised if he didn't but there seem to be some who think he may choose to wear a morning suit a la Edward. That made sense for Edward but would look odd for Harry.

He seems to love the beard so I don't think he's shaving it, definitely not just to pacify naysayers.
