Shortly after Kensington Palace announced Prince William had been chosen to serve as best man at Prince Harry’s royal wedding on May 19, the new father-of-three joked: "It feels great, a real delight… revenge is sweet." At the time, we were slightly puzzled as to what revenge Wills was brewing up for his younger brother?

A whoopee cushion under Hazza's knees at the altar perhaps? A handful of marbles thrown down the aisle to see the 33-year-old stumble like Bambi on ice? A best man’s speech including details of the prince's embarrassing first kisses and drunk nights out, maybe?

Well, we have a feeling we might know exactly what revenge William is looking to get Harry back for.


Last night, ITV aired the documentary Invitation To A Royal Wedding which told the story of how Prince Harry caused a stir on Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding day.

As we all know, the new parents—who welcomed a baby boy, Prince Louis, last Monday—had two wedding cakes on the special day: one fruit cake and one chocolate tiffin cake.

However, the couple might have had to do with just one cake on their special day if Harry’s practical joke had gone wrong with the latter bake.


Master chocolatier Barry Colenso, who created Prince William and Kate Middleton’s second chocolate tiffin cake, explained in the programme: "We’d just finished the cake, and I remember Harry came bounding in. Then he pretended to box with the top decoration. We were all like: "Oh no!'"

Fortunately for the chocolate connoisseur, he and his team had made an emergency cake for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding day which they had to personally drive to Buckingham Palace.

"So we organized two vehicles that would go separately. What happens if one of them was in an accident? They were carrying precious cargo. I took one of the vans and drove the route three times, literally noting every pothole, every corner," he added.

Can you imagine if Harry’s boxing joke had gone wrong, though? #Nightmare. Revenge is sweet, William. We can’t wait to find out what practical jokes you’ve got up your sleeve to play on your brother.

For the upcoming royal wedding, Prince Harry and his bride-to-be, Meghan Markle, have chosen London-based pastry chef Claire Ptak to create a lemon elderflower cake to incorporate the bright flavors of the season.
