Prince Harry has asked his elder brother Prince William to be best man at his wedding to US actress Meghan Markle on 19 May, Kensington Palace has confirmed.
Harry was William’s best man at William’s wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011 and has invited his sibling to repay the favour when he marries Markle at Windsor Castle.
William is itching to return the compliment and all the pranks thrown in for good measure. “It feels great, thrilled and delighted obviously,” he told reporters at the Greenhouse Centre, a facility that provides sport and social facilities for young people in central London.
“Revenge is sweet, I’ll be looking forward to this,” he said, probably referring to the tradition for the best man to poke fun at the groom in a wedding speech and the high jinxes associated with the stag do.
Prince Harry sounded resigned to his fate retorting: “He’s known for months.”
