So Prince Harry recently proposed to actress Meghan Markle. Their wedding is set to take place in May 2018. Now the big question is….Will Prince William be Prince Harry’s best man?
It looks like the royal wedding will take place at St. Georges’s Chapel at the Windsor Castle. You can bet it will be very well attended. You can also bet all the details will go through several protocols for approval.
Of course everyone is still wondering what role Prince William will play. Will he be Prince Harry’s best man? After all, wasn’t Prince Harry Prince William’s best man?
Is the answer about tradition? Has Harry already asked William to be his best man? Or what?
Well, as you may or may not know, it’s not a British custom to have a best man. Prince William actually broke the tradition by giving his brother that title. So, it looks like Harry may not reciprocate.
Marlene Koenig a royalty expert gave an explanation: “The best man or best men are officially called supporters. William will probably be Harry’s supporter.”
So, while Prince William will be involved in the wedding, it looks like he will be a ‘supporter’.
The good news is, Prince William will probably still get to plan Harry’s cool Stag Party though.
Prince William and his wife, Duchess Catherine are thrilled about their new addition to their family. William had a very brotherly comment on that topic,
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.”
As the wedding approaches, many are also asking how will Meghan Markle’s life change?
“She has joined the family firm and her every move will be dissected and analyzed and she will never be out of the limelight,” Seward told Us.
“She has now become public property — not just in the UK — but globally. Nothing she has ever done will prepare her for this. It will be more intense than any celebrity has ever experienced. She is now public property. She has sacrificed her freedom and private life.”
Seward continued, “There is no ‘training’ process as such,” for Markle to become a royal. “What Meghan will have to do is learn the British way of life and customs, which she has already started to do. She is basically learning a part and she will do it well.”
But then Seward revealed perks that Markle can expect,
“She will lead a life of immense privilege. But it is regimented, and she will sacrifice her freedom for luxury and her silence. No accepting of free gifts, but every designer in the world will be clamoring to dress her. Great hairdressing! Great cars, private planes, cold houses and cold champagne, no financial worries and the best medical and health care, for starters.”
Prince Harry has made a beautiful choice in selecting his new bride, Meghan Markle. Although Prince William may only be officially a ‘supporter’, at his brother’s royal wedding, he will still be one very proud big brother. A big brother who will always be there in life for his younger brother.
