Prince Harry will be William’s best man

London – Britain’s Prince Harry will be the best man at the wedding of his elder brother, William, to Kate Middleton, the princes’ office confirmed today.

Middleton has also, as expected, chosen her sister, Pippa, to be her maid of honour when the couple tie the knot at London’s Westminster Abbey on April 29.

Other bridesmaids and page boys are made up of young children from friends and members of the royal family, including Louise Windsor, the daughter of William’s uncle, Prince Edward.

Margarita Armstrong-Jones, daughter of Viscount Linley, who is the son of Queen Elizabeth’s late sister, Margaret, Grace van Cutsem, William’s goddaughter, and Eliza Lopes are the three other bridesmaids.

William Lowther-Pinkerton, son of William’s private secretary, and Tom Pettifer, son of the prince’s former nanny and his godson, will be the two page boys.

Details of all the outfits they will wear will not be given out until the wedding day, Clarence House said.

It also announced that the couple would undertake two official engagements later this month, a naming ceremony for a lifeboat, and a reception to mark the start of the 600th anniversary of St Andrews University in Scotland, where they met as students.
