Royal Wedding News: Prince William Chooses Prince Harry as Best Man, Kate Middleton Chooses Sister Philippa as Maid of Honour

New Royal Wedding Details Including Harry As Best Man

The countdown is on till April 29 — when Prince William and Kate Middleton get hitched! And as the day gets closer, more details about their nuptials are being revealed. The latest provides information (from the British Monarchy Facebook page) about their bridal party: Prince Harry will be William’s best man, and Kate’s sister Philippa will be her maid of honour. In asking Harry to be his best man, William has broken a tradition where male members of the royal family have a “supporter” instead of a best man. But in going with tradition, this means Harry will be in charge of organising his brother’s bachelor party.


It was also revealed that the couple will have four bridesmaids (similar to flower girls) and two page boys — two of them, Grace van Cutsem, 3, and Tom Pettifer, 8, are William’s godchildren. Next on the schedule for the future King and Queen? A visit to the university where they met. Wills and Kate will return to the University of St. Andrews next week to help kick off its 600th anniversary celebrations.
