In news that isn’t surprising but still exciting, Kensington Palace announced Thursday (April 26) that Prince Harry has asked Prince William to be the best man in his wedding to Meghan Markle next month.
To celebrate the news, the palace shared some tender photos of the brothers bonding. The latest is from when they attended the Star Wars premiere a few months back, and the earliest is of the two of them as boys wearing police hats and ties. Child Prince Harry is standing cutely with his hands on his hips, as if he’s thinking, “Yup, in 30 years, I’m going to marry an actress from a USA network TV show, and the world’s gonna be shook.” Check out Kensington Palace’s Instagram announcement for yourself, below:
And the same message was posted on Twitter too, so their brotherly love could exist on as many platforms as possible.
Like we said, this news isn’t exactly shocking. Prince William and Prince Harry are similar in age, and they’re very close with each other. Prince Harry was also best man in Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011, so it’s only fitting he return the favor.
The question that remains now, though, is who will be Meghan Markle’s maid of honor. Will it be her mother? Priyanka Chopra? One of the Spice Girls? Please let it be one of the Spice Girls.
While we wait on that information, here’s a quick stream of cute Will and Harry moments that make this best man news even sweeter.
A photo from earlier this week where Prince Harry’s clearly asking, “For my bachelor party, can we have a Suits marathon?” And Prince William’s like, “IDK, maybe.”
This pic of Baby Prince William holding an umbrella for Baby Prince Harry, proving he’s always had this best man thing down pat.
When Prince William said he hopes Prince Harry’s engagement to Markle means he’ll stay out of his fridge. Um, getting married doesn’t stop you from snacking, my friend.
The time Prince Harry said he’s better at math than Prince William. Spoken like true royal nerds.
And last but not least, a photo of them as teenagers to prove everyone—even the royals—had an awkward phase.
