Who was Prince William’s Best Man?

When Prince William tied the knot to Kate Middleton on April 29, 2011, he selected his younger and only brother Prince Harry for the honour.

The Duke of Sussex subsequently returned the favour, asking William to be his Best Man for his wedding with Meghan Markle on May 19, 2018.

Where did Prince William go on his stag do?

Ahead of William’s wedding, the Duke of Cambridge celebrated with what was thought to be a low-key event with about 20 pals.

The gang went clay pigeon shooting and supped on port before going surfing during a weekend at a Devon mansion named Hartland Abbey.

But Wills didn’t escape a bit of classic stag do joshing as the heir to the throne was forced to wear a chest wig and hairpiece by pals on his boozy celebration.

At the time, a source said of the royal, who also had a sticker with the Queen’s name on his head: “He took it all in good spirit.”

He even went surfing to mark the final stages of his life as a bachelor.

In an interview the future King revealed how he and soldier brother Harry employed “military precision” in their operation to hide details of the bash from the media.

Who was invited to the Hartland Abbey party?

William was joined by his brother Harry at the bachelor party as well as another 20 pals.

One source said William had insisted on such secrecy that he even instructed his pals to avoid setting foot in a nearby village in case they raised locals’ suspicions.

And the gang agreed a “what goes on tour, stays on tour” secrecy pact before embarking on their weekend in historic Hartland Abbey and the country estate that surrounds it.
