It would appear that he was wearing the dress uniform of the Irish Guards (as pozorvlak rightly points out), though he was also wearing RAF wings and the blue riband (sash) of the Order of the Garter.

As a captain with the Blues and Royals (household cavalry), it's entirely possible that Harry's dress uniform does come with that much excessive gold braid :)

(Though for the sake of pedantry it should be noted that he currently serves with the army air corps).

RAF wings! That must have been what confused me.

And yes, johnckirk, note that dress uniform isn't the same as working uniform - Harry wouldn't have worn that at FOB Delhi, but nor would the Chief of the General Staff wear it to the office. And the Household Cavalry are very grand, even by Army standards :-)
