Ever since Prince Harry revealed his engagement to Meghan Markle, details of the royal wedding are being flashed all over the net.

But what is left is to guess that who will be Prince Harry’s best man?

Well, it turns out that William will not be the best man at his younger brother’s wedding.

After this some of you might be in a shock, while the others would be wondering WHY? Don’t worry, we got the answer to your question. According to our research, there is no such thing as a ‘best man’ at a royal wedding.

Marlene Koenig, a British and European royalty expert says:

“The best man or best men are is a royal wedding officially called supporters. Prince William will most probably be the groom, Harry’s supporter”.

William broke protocol when he appointed Harry as his best man at his wedding in 2011.

Prince Charles chose his brothers,, Andrew and Edward, to be his supporters at his wedding to Diana. Prince Edward chose his brothers, Charles and Andrew to be his supporters.

As far as we have come to know, Harry still hadn’t asked William to be his best man.

When one of our interviewer asked about their bond and relationship and the possibility of him being Harry’s best man, William responded: “He hasn’t asked me yet. So, it could probably be quite a sensitive issue”.

Best man or a supporter, no doubt William will indeed excel in assisting his brother.

“We’re very much excited and delighted for both of them. We wish them all the happiness in this very exciting time”.

He then jokingly added: “Personally, I hope it means that he stays out of my fridge and will stop scrounging my food, which he’s done for the last few years”.

Although Prince William might not be Harry’s best man, perhaps he’ll help plan his much awaited bachelor party. In United Kingdom, groomsmen typically celebrate a high styled ‘stag weekend’ with a few days worth of festivities.

As for who else will be in the wedding party?

Koenig predicts: “Everyone’s favourite youngest royals, George and Charlotte could play a role. However, their mother, Catherine will not for obvious reasons”.

“It is very much likely that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be a page boy and a bridesmaid respectively. Saying about anyone else is quite a guess”.
