DEBUNKED! Not Prince Harry but Prince William Broke the Royal Protocol for TWO Commoners During His Wedding

DEBUNKED! Not Prince Harry but Prince William Broke the Royal Protocol for TWO Commoners During His Wedding

Prince William was hailed as a perfect elder brother in April 2011 when he broke a major royal protocol for Prince Harry. Various media reports suggested that the heir to the throne appointed his younger brother as his best man during his wedding to Kate Middleton in Westminster Abbey. Notably, the royal family did not follow the concept of the best man, as they termed them supporters.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry repaid the Prince of Wales by honoring him with the same title during his wedding to Meghan Markle in May 2018 at St George’s Castle. However, via his memoir Spare, Prince Harry clarified that he was not Prince William’s best man. It was just a bare-faced lie by Buckingham Palace. What is the story behind the entire fiasco?

Prince William did not have faith in Prince Harry 

Detailing the episode in Spare, Prince Harry revealed that Prince William’s two commoner friends, Thomas van Straubenzee and James Meade, were given the prestigious honor of being the best men. However, since the public expected the Duke of Sussex to be by his brother’s side, the Palace floated a false narrative

“The public expected me to be the best man. Therefore, the palace saw no choice but to say that I was. In truth, Willy didn’t want me giving a best man speech. He didn’t think it safe to hand me a live mic and put me in a position to go off script,” the Duke claimed as per the Brides.

The Sussex royal defended his elder brother, saying that Prince William’s concerns about him saying something wildly inappropriate were not wrong. The two royal brothers had a healthy chat about the topic before the wedding, and Prince Harry was okay with the arrangement.

Meanwhile, despite the Prince of Wales’ worry, the Duke of Sussex shared a few heartwarming words at the former’s reception. It was an emotional moment as Prince Harry recalled some of their fond childhood memories while also mentioning how their late mother Princess Diana would be happy witnessing the bond between Prince William and Kate Middleton.

    Number 1, Who cares? There is entitely too much in the media about the superfluous royal family.
    2. Not anyone’s business. Selecting a Best Man should be a private matter, not a political choice. If it became a political issue, I am sorry for both brothers.

    Harry was the only one who stood with William at the wedding. Harry was the only person to go with the mothers and fathers into the inner church with Pippa where they sign the papers. Harry had to share with Williams friends the speaking post at the reception. Harry was the “best man”. He resented it because he had to share with Williams friends the speakers toast. Harry is totally absorbed with himself snd self centered. He is a the perfect partner for the narcissist Meghan!

    It would seem to me that Prince William has been right about Harry all along. Harry has no mouth filters it seems and William was right to worry about Megan & Harry and the fact that they were moving to fast and that Megan would not be able to handle Royal Life. You can clearly see what happened, she couldn’t handle it and the RF lost both Harry and his kids because she could not handle the pressures of Royal life, William was right on both counts!

    It seems Prince Harry was right about Willieleaks and the royal family leaking untrue information about him and his wife!! So, what’s the difference? So sick of the double standard and the world is too!

    I think this is living truth, that the treatment of Harry has been true all along! A Spare is what he has been to all of them, especially WILL!

    I love Harry he is a prince made of Royal Blood so the fact they want to remove his title won’t make a bit of different. He makes his own money. He made his new family so he must accept the bad & the good just like us all. Flesh & blood. God Bless you to all Royals.

    Of course his brother should have been his best man! The fact he was not is telling of their relationship. If, as reported, Harry still gave a toast… the reason for not having him as best man was just an lame excuse.

    This is ridiculous. Obviously Harry was the Best Man with him accompanying The Maid of Honor Pippa,
    Nowhere is it. Stated in the protocols that other members of the wedding party can’t give speeches in honor of the occasion.
