We are calling it as a returning favor because Prince Harry was Prince William’s best man when he married Kate in 2011.
Prince Harry and William were both in their best fun mode. When asked Harry how did he ask his brother to be his best man, he replied – “Got down on one knee. He’s known for months.”
While, Prince William seems to be giving a warning to his brother ahead of his wedding saying,“Revenge is sweet.”
William and Harry share great bond and are closer to each other because of their mother Diana’s tragic death in 1997. Prince William said, “Our relationship is closer than it’s been because of the situation we’ve been through. Losing our mother at a young age, it’s helped us travel through that difficult patch together. You’re like-minded. You go through similar things. It’s a bond, and it’s something you know you’ve tackled together and come out better for it. That’s the thing about being a best mate: Inevitably one of you is sometimes on an up, while the other is on a down. You’re always there for each other and repaying that favor.”
According to sources, William will make a toast at his brother Prince Harry’s wedding and will also read a poem or prose that their late mother, Princess Diana, favored.
Traditionally speaking there is no such concept as best man at the royal wedding. The tradition was just mended or say started only by Prince William when he asked his brother Prince Harry to be his best man at his wedding in 2011.
The royal brothers are too cool!
