Just like Prince Harry supported Prince William in his 2011 wedding, the Duke of Cambridge will be standing beside his younger brother on his wedding day come May 19.

Kensington Palace made yet another formal announcement about Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming nuptials, this time alongside several playful images of the brothers goofing around over the years. “Prince Harry has asked his brother The Duke of Cambridge to be his Best Man at his wedding to Ms. Meghan Markle,” the palace tweeted.

“Prince Harry served as best man to The Duke of Cambridge at his wedding to Miss Catherine Middleton in 2011,” the palace added. “The Duke of Cambridge is honored to have been asked, and is very much looking forward to supporting his brother at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor on May 19th.”

Harry and Pippa Middleton served as best man and maid of honor, respectively, in William and Kate’s 2011 wedding.

Both William and Harry made a joint public appearance together shortly after the palace announced the news on Thursday. “How did I ask? Got down on one knee. He’s known for months,” Harry joked at the Greenhouse Sports Centre in London.

“Thrilled and delighted, obviously,” William added to reporters of being asked. “Revenge is sweet.”
