William: I don’t know if I will be Harry’s best man

Prince William is being kept waiting by his brother when it comes to the big question of whether he’s going to be best man at his wedding.

With five months to go until Prince Harry gets married to Meghan Markle, William said that he still doesn’t know if he will get the gig.

When he was asked by DJ Roman Kemp about his brother’s big day and the importance of everyone having a best man, William laughed and said: “He hasn’t asked me yet – it could be a sensitive issue!”

The Duke of Cambridge was filming a video in London with the Campaign Against Living Miserably (Calm), which helps those at risk of suicide and encourages men to speak about their mental health.

William was taking part in a film that forms part of the charity’s Best Man video project, which urges men to open up to their friends.

Harry, 33, and his American actress fiancee, 36, are due to marry on 19 May at Windsor Castle.

Former footballer Rio Ferdinand, who was also supporting the charity, asked William whether he would be at Wembley or Windsor on the big day, as the wedding clashes with the FA Cup final.

The second-in-line to the throne, who is president of the Football Association, laughed – saying he is “still working” on the clash.

William also spoke more seriously about how losing his mother at a young age, Diana, Princess of Wales, helped create a special “bond” with Harry.

He explained: “My brother and I’s relationship is closer than it’s been because of the situations we’ve been through. Losing our mother at a young age has helped us to travel through that difficult patch together.”

Calm is a partner of Heads Together, the mental health campaign led by William, alongside the Duchess of Cambridge and Harry.
