The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are newlyweds, but they’ve already got another wedding on the horizon. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will soon attend a wedding — and Prince Harry will reportedly be the best man.
According to Hello!, London’s Evening Standard reports that Prince Harry will be the best man for his childhood friend Charlie van Straubenzee. His pal is marrying filmmaker Daisy Jenks in the county of Surrey this August. Prince Harry and van Straubenzee have apparently been friends since their prep school days, so it’s no surprise that he’ll reportedly take on the pivotal role at the upcoming ceremony.
As Hello! explains, van Straubenzee reportedly had a role in Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding too. While he wasn’t the best man — that honor went to Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge — van Straubenzee and his brother, Thomas, were reportedly ushers at the wedding. Still, it sounds like the brothers are super close to the royal family. Thomas van Straubenzee is one of Princess Charlotte of Cambridge’s 12 godparents. Both Prince Harry and Prince William are close to the van Straubenzee family, so it makes sense that the prince might serve as his friend’s best man.
Hello! also reports that van Straubenzee gave a toast to the newlyweds during the small evening wedding reception at Frogmore House, teasing Prince Harry about their school days. The wedding speech also reportedly mentioned Prince Harry’s mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. If Prince Harry is serving as the best man, he’ll have plenty of opportunities to get his friend back for that teasing at van Straubenzee’s wedding reception.
The wedding isn’t the only one on the horizon for the Duke and Duchess, either. Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank are getting married on October 12. (They’ll also be married at St. George’s Chapel, where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wed, which will delight royal wedding fans.) And it’s safe to say the newlyweds, along with the rest of the royal family, will attend. After all, what better way for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to celebrate their own love than by supporting other couples too?
