Prince Harry’s best man is finally announced. Who is it?

Best Man

Prince Harry is going to get married soon. He is all set to start his new life with Meghan Markle. And so, there are other things we all have speculated upon.

One of those things is the selection of best man. And, Prince Harry has already got his.

The news is something of a break from tradition. Why? Royals don’t typically have a ‘best man’. They rather have a ‘supporter’. A few days back, Kensington Palace announced that:-

“The Duke of Cambridge, William is honoured to have been asked, and is very much looking forward to supporting his brother at St George’s Chapel, Windsor on May 19th”.

The best man or best men are officially called supporters. But, only when we talk about royals.

Prince William broke protocol when he appointed his younger brother, Harry as his best man at the time of his wedding. Their father, Charles chose his brothers, Andrew and Edward, to be his supporter when he married Diana.

Come May 19, the Duke of Cambridge, William will no doubt excel in assisting his brother. 

After the announcement of Prince Harry’s wedding, William gave a statement saying: “We’re very excited and delighted for them both. We wish them all the happiness in this very exciting time”.

When asked about what he as a brother feels, William said: “Personally, I hope it means he stays out of my fridge and will stop scrounging my food. That’s one thing he’s done for the last few years”.

As for who else will be in the wedding party?

Everyone’s favourite, Prince George and Princess Charlotte could play a role. However, their mother, Kate Middleton, will not.

There is no doubt that it will be an incredible occasion. A Kensington Palace spokesperson even released a statement saying: “The wedding will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the character of the bride and groom all together”.

“The couple of course want the day to be a special, celebratory moment for their friends and family. They also want the day to be shaped in such a way that it allows members of the public to feel part of the celebrations too. They are working through ideas for how this might be achieved”.
