Royal break of tradition in best man

Prince Harry is to be best man at the wedding of his brother William to Kate Middleton, Buckingham Palace announced yesterday.

Prince Harry is to be best man at the wedding of his brother William to Kate Middleton, Buckingham Palace announced yesterday.

The move breaks with centuries of tradition as, in the past, British royal bridegrooms have merely named a “supporter” rather than a full-blown best man.

Middleton has asked her sister, Philippa, to be her maid of honor.

The bridesmaids include Lady Louise Windsor, the eight-year-old daughter of the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward, who is brother to William’s father Charles.

Others are the Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones, the daughter of the Viscount and Viscountess Linley, and Grace van Cutsem, the daughter of family friends to whom Harry and William have been close since childhood.
