Prince William confirms that he will serve as the best man at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding
The palace confirmed that Prince William will be the best man at Prince Harry's wedding which is said to take place on May 19.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to get married on May 19 and the much-awaited question about the best man for the wedding has finally been answered. The Kensington Palace confirmed the news that Prince William will be the best for Prince Harry's wedding.

Looks like the older brother is performing the same duty which the younger one did at his wedding. Along with the tweet, photographs of the brothers were shared which showed how close their relationship is.

This news does not come as a surprise as everyone is aware of the relationship the brothers share. Ever since the death of their mother, Princess Diana, the brothers have been there for each other. About 600 guests have been invited to the wedding and nearly 1000 members of the public have been invited to witness the marriage from the grounds of Windsor Castle.
Officially, there is no such thing as best man when it comes to the royal family and instead, it is called "supporter". After Meghan and Prince Harry announced their wedding, multiple people asked Prince William if Harry had asked him to be his best man. "He hasn't asked me yet… So, it could be a sensitive issue," he said at that time. The only thing that clashes with his royal duty at the moment is the FA cup final.
It is believed that the final for the cup will be held around the same day and even though Prince William is the president of the Football Association, we are sure that he is going to put his duties as a brother ahead of anything else. We are sure it is going to be yet another memorable event to remember the wedding by and we cannot wait to see how it goes.
