Time is ticking. Prince William revealed on Wednesday, January 10, that his recently-engaged brother, Prince Harry, has yet to pop the question—to serve as his best man.
The Duke of Cambridge shared the tidbit with U.K. radio host Roman Kemp while promoting the Campaign Against Living Miserably’s Best Man Project this week. “He hasn’t asked me yet, just to clear that up,” William replied. “It could be a sensitive subject.”
Harry served as best man in Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011, while the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton, was maid of honor. Typically, however, royal weddings exclude the title of “best man” in favor of the term “supporters.”
Prince Charles had his two brothers Prince Andrew and Prince Edward serve as supporters in his 1981 wedding to Princess Diana.
Meanwhile, another hot button issue was also noted during the latest interview with William. On May 19, the day of Harry and Meghan Markle’s nuptials, the famed F.A. Cup soccer final is set to take place. “I’m trying to see what I can do,” replied William, who usually attends the final day of the soccer competition.
Despite the lingering questions of “best man” or “supporter,” the brothers remain best friends.
“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,” William said Wednesday. “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.”
