Prince Harry Will Not Have William as ‘Best Man’ at Wedding

Prince Harry Will Not Have William as Best Man at Wedding

The internet has been absolutely abuzz with news of the Royal wedding coming up next year between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

We have eaten up details about their families and everything we can get about Markle: her childhood, her interests, her personality, and even her dogs.

The auspicious day is set for May of next year, and is planned to be held at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle — a location said to be highly favored by the Queen.

Of course, an event of this size and visibility will be well-attended and every detail will be set in stone months before the ceremony. And we’ll continue to get updates on the Royal goings-on and progress on the wedding itself.

The most recent murmurings have been about Prince William’s role in his brother’s wedding.

Weddings are a major family affair, and all the royal family will be involved in one way or another. The question now, though, is will Prince William be Prince Harry’s “best man”?

While some sources offered suggestions that Harry had already asked William to fill this coveted role, other sources are decrying that idea and pointing to tradition for their answer.

The thing is, having a designated “Best Man” is not a British custom. Prince William broke tradition in order to give his brother that title.

But it looks like Harry might not reciprocate in the same manner.

A royalty expert by the name of Marlene Koenig gave an explanation: “The best man or best men are officially called supporters. William will probably be Harry’s supporter.”

So while the older brother will probably still be involved and get a similar role, it’ll likely go by the more traditional name. Harry planned William’s Stag Party before his wedding in 2011, so it’s guessed that William will return the favor for his younger brother.

Both Prince William and Duchess Catherine have expressed their joy over the new addition to their family. William had a very brotherly comment on that topic, as well.

He started out with general well-wishing: “We’re very excited and delighted for them both, and wish them all the happiness in this very exciting time.”

But then he took a good-natured jab at his brother that all older siblings can relate to.

“For me, personally,” he said, “I hope it means he stays out of my fridge and will stop him scrounging my food, which he’s done for the last few years.”

So there you have it! William will probably serve in the role of “supporter,” but not by the title of “best man” that so many Americans are familiar with.

No matter what they call it, we’re sure this wedding will be one to watch. It’s certain to amaze viewers around the world!
