Prince Harry Still Hasn't Asked Prince William To Be His Best Man

With the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a matter of months away, we can only imagine that slots in the wedding party are filling up fast: indeed, recent reports have not only suggested that Meghan has already chosen her maid of honour, but have also implied that the former Suits star might chose to walk down the aisle with her mother, Doria, in a break with royal tradition. However, it seems that one major role in the proceedings remains as yet unclaimed: that of Prince Harry’s best man.

Yesterday, Prince William was interviewed by DJ Roman Kemp as part of the launch for the (aptly named) Best Man Project, a new mental health initiative supported by the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) and the royals’ Heads Together campaign. When the talk turned to Harry’s impending nuptials, William revealed that his younger brother hasn’t actually got around to asking him to take on best man duties.

‘He hasn’t asked me yet – it could be a sensitive issue!’ he joked, before adding that he is ‘still working’ on the clash between the FA Cup final and the royal wedding, both of which will take place on 19th May (as president of the FA, the Prince would normally attend the fixture at Wembley).

On a more sombre note, William went on to speak about how losing his mother at a young age brought him closer to his younger brother. ‘My brother and I’s relationship is closer than it’s been because of the situations we’ve been through. Losing our mother at a young age has helped us to travel through that difficult patch together,’ he said.

Per royal etiquette, a groom technically does not have a best man; instead, they have a ‘supporter.’ When he married Kate Middleton in 2011, William opted to break with this tradition, choosing to call Harry his best man instead.
