While this article is about Edward, it offers an excellent explanation as to the medals that are often worn by members of the BRF at different events.

Were Prince Charles and Prince Andrew also awarded the Queen's Silver, Golden and Diamond jubilee medals?

I really appreciated how the article explained the medals/honors that the royals wear. Unfortunately it is likely to be lost on DF commenters who sneer whenever they appear at military event in uniform. :(
