While details of the upcoming royal wedding still remain a mystery to the public—we still don’t know if Meghan Markle’s father will be walking her down the aisle—we know now that Prince William will be the groom’s best man. 

A Twitter update from Kensington Palace confirms the news.




William broke protocol when he appointed Harry as his best man position at his wedding, according to The Guardian. Their father, the Prince of Wales, chose his brothers, Andrew and Edward, to be his supporter when he married Diana at St. Paul's Cathedral in 1981. And Prince Edward chose his brothers Charles and Andrew to be his supporters.

As of January, Harry still hadn't asked William to be his best man. When an interviewer asked about their relationship and the possibility of him being best man, William responded: "He hasn't asked me yet." He then added with a laugh, "So, it could be a sensitive issue."

No doubt William will excel in assisting his brother, whom he is "delighted" for.

“We’re very excited, delighted for them both. We’re wishing them all the happiness in this very exciting time,” the Duke of Cambridge told reporters on a recent visit to Finland. He jokingly added, “Personally, I hope it means he stays out of my fridge and will stop scrounging my food, which he’s done for the last few years!”


Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Charlotte, Prince George, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry stand on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in 2016.

As for who else will be in the wedding party? Koenig predicts everyone's favorite little royals — Prince George and Princess Charlotte, of course — could play a role. However, their mother, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, will not.

"It is very likely that Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge will be a page boy and a bridesmaid," she says.

No doubt, 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."

"The couple, of course, want the day to be a special, celebratory moment for their friends and family," the spokesperson told journalists. "They also want the day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations too and are currently working through ideas for how this might be achieved.”
