use a militäry uniform." If that's the case, why did Prince Henrik wear a Danish uniform? He, Henrik, was never enlisted in the Danish military to my knowledge. Therefore, did Henrik 'earn' his uniform or was it simply given to him by virtue of being married to Danish heiress? Of course, one can debate whether a future prince consort should or shouldn't wear a uniform. However, I agree that uniforms should be earned but it seems royalty are 'different' due to their inherited status and spouses are given titles/honors by virtue of being married to some said heir, e.g., Ms. Silvia Sommerlath to H.M. Queen Silvia of Sweden.
Also, one could argue, by virtue of a royal wearing a uniform thus makes it 'royal' due to their status.
