The Queen’s six other grandchildren will wear “a dark ceremonial frock and robe with decorations”, according to Buckingham Palace.
Andrew, who served 22 years in the Royal Navy, did not wear a military uniform at the commemorations of his mother, the Queen, and will not wear a uniform at her funeral. He will be dressed in uniform on Friday evening when he and his siblings, led by Charles, watch over the Queen’s coffin.
Saturday’s vigil will only include the Queen’s grandchildren, as their spouses will not be present, according to Buckingham Palace.
The grandchildren, who have spent summers with the Queen at Balmoral Castle and Christmases with her at Sandringham, are now almost all adults with 12 children between them.

In a statement after her death, William, who will stand at the head of the Queen’s coffin on Saturday, said that if the world lost a leader, it had “lost a grandmother”.
“And while I will mourn her loss, I also feel incredibly grateful. I have benefited from the Queen’s wisdom and comfort in my fifth decade,” he said. “My wife has had twenty years of her guidance and support. My three children must vacation with her and create memories that will last a lifetime.”
Here’s a look at the Queen’s eight grandchildren gathered on Saturday to watch over her coffin.
William, Prince of Wales
George, Louis and Charlotte are respectively second, third and fourth in line to the throne.
Harry, the Duke of Sussex
Harry, 37, fifth in line to the throne, is Charles and Diana’s youngest child.
Archie and Lili are respectively sixth and seventh in line to the throne.
Princess Beatrice of York
Beatrice, ninth to the throne, is the eldest daughter of Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson.
Eugenie, 11th in line to the throne, is Andrew and Ferguson’s youngest daughter.
James is the son of Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
The 14-year-old is 14th in line to the British throne.
The Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor
Louise is the daughter of Edouard and Sophie.
The 18-year-old is 15th in line to the British throne.
Louise falls behind her brother in the line of succession despite being older because she was born after 2011. A 2013 law called the Succession to the Crown Act ended the age-old practice of a younger son replacing an eldest daughter in the line of succession, but the law only applies to members of the royal family born after October 28, 2011.
Peter Phillips, 17th to the throne, is the Queen’s oldest grandson at 44. He is the eldest child of Anne, the Princess Royal, and her former husband, Peter Phillips.
Phillips is the father of 11-year-old Savannah Phillips and 10-year-old Isla Phillips, who are 18th and 19th respectively to the throne.
Zara Phillips Tindall, 20th to the throne, is Anne and Phillips’ youngest child.
The 41-year-old is married to Michael Tindall, with whom she shares three children: Mia, 8, Lena, 4, and Lucas, 1, who are 21st, 22nd and 23rd respectively on the throne.
