William and Harry are not solely brothers but the closest of friends.

That said, Prince William will not be titled as the best man at Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle, which will be held next May. Most may question this, however there is a simple explanation to this controversial statement.

At a royal wedding, “the best man or best men are officially called supporters ” stated a British and European royalty expert. When Prince Charles wed Princess Diana in 1981, he requested that Prince Andrew and Prince Edward be his supporters, whereas Prince Edward requested that his two older siblings be his supporters for his wedding.

It was professed that Prince William went against tradition for his own 2011 nuptials as he officially titled his brother, Harry, as his best man. It is alleged that Prince William will likely be Prince Harry’s supporter.

Furthermore, it is alleged that Duchess Kate won’t be amongst Meghan Markle’s guests at her bridal party as the Duchess wishes for the wedding to be focused on the bride and refuses to impede on her nuptials. This mindset appeared to be present throughout Pippa Middletown’s wedding in May, as the future Queen kept a low-profile.

However, it is highly likely that Prince Harry’s little nephew and niece, Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be granted the official role of page boy and bridesmaid at the spring wedding, as per Pippa Middleton’s nuptials.
