Prince Harry wants his royal brother, Prince William, to be his best man.
A week ago, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement. The couple has been mum about their wedding preparations, but more information leaks as the countdown for the next royal wedding began. According to an insider, Prince Harry wants the Duke of Cambridge to be his best man.
“Harry has several close guy friends, but there’s no way he would ask anyone but William to take on the top job,” one insider told Us Weekly. The royal princes have maintained a good relationship and have been spotted attending a number of royal engagements together with Kate Middleton.
In addition, Prince George and Princess Charlotte will likely have roles in their uncle’s wedding. Another insider added that Jessica Mulroney’s daughter, Ivy, will also be part of the entourage. Mulroney is a friend and stylist to the “Suits” actress.
However, while Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are likely part of the next royal wedding, Middleton might not join them in the entourage. Another insider revealed that it is unlikely for the Duchess of Cambridge to be Markle’s matron of honor. In fact, the royal mom of two might not even attend the “Horrible Bosses” star’s bridal party because she barely knows the bride-to-be.
“For another, she is the future queen consort when William becomes king after his father, and would unlikely be an attending person to another royal bride,” Marlene Koenig told Town & Country. “But it’s unlikely for Catherine to do this. She was not a matron of honor, even at her sister’s wedding.”
In related news, Prince Harry and Markle will reportedly have a wedding cake made from bananas. The couple loves the fruit, so they opted to have a banana cake instead of the traditional fruit cake.
“This will be the first royal wedding cake made from banana,” one source said.
Rosalind Miller, award-winning wedding cake designer also thinks that Prince Harry and Markle might prefer flavored sponges because “people are becoming more aware of different flavors.”
