From the official Clarence House release:

Prince William's Uniform


Prince William will wear an Irish Guards Mounted Officer's uniform in Guard of Honour Order with a Forage Cap. The Prince will wear a gold and crimson sash, and gold sword slings, both of which are worn in the presence of a Member of the Royal Family. The Prince will not wear a sword. The Prince will wear the Garter Sash with the Wings of the Royal Air Force, the Garter Star and the Golden Jubilee Medal.

The tunic, in Guards' Red, features the Irish Guards' distinctive arrangement of buttons in groups of four.  The buttons feature the Harp of Ireland surmounted by the Crown Imperial.  The arrangement of buttons on the uniform denotes the Irish Guards' position in the Order of Battle as the Fourth Regiment of Foot Guards

The Insignia of the Irish Guards on the Forage Cap is the eight-pointed Star of the Most Illustrious Order of St. Patrick, and features the Regiment's motto 'Quis Separabit?' ('Who shall separate us?').

The Forage Cap carries the badge of the Blues and Royals, which features the insignia of the Most Noble Order of the Garter with The Queen's cipher.


Prince Charles' Uniform

Prince Charles will wear the Royal Navy Number One Dress, a ceremonial suit. He has held the rank of admiral of the Royal Navy since 2006. There is ornamental braiding on the right shoulder, showing that he is aide-de-camp to his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Uniform

Prince William's grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, will wear his Grenadier Guards uniform with a Garter sash. The uniform boasts a scarlet tunic with blue facings and dark blue trousers with a red stripe.
