Prince Harry’s best man speech at friend’s wedding shared online

A very rare glimpse into the prince's private life.

Over the weekend, Prince Harry served as the best man at close friend Charlie van Straubenzee’s wedding to Daisy Jenks. And while we only got a glimpse of the festivities from outside the church, a picture of the Duke of Sussex delivering his best man speech has made its way online. 

The 33-year-old royal can be seen standing on a podium in front of a sign that reads ‘Just Married.’ The prince also stands next to a bouquet of colourful balloons, and the room is crowded with wedding guests – presumably including new wife Meghan Markle, who was also celebrating her 37th birthday on the same day.

While it’s not known what Harry said in his speech, one can assume it was full of hilarious anecdotes from the pair’s childhood.

PEOPLE reports the two met at Ludgrove Prep School and have been friends ever since. 

Charlie even recently delivered a speech at Harry and Meghan’s wedding during the evening reception at Frogmore House.

Several reports claim he made fun of Harry’s role as dormitory monitor during their school days, even though he was the ‘worst behaved kid of them all.’

‘All I wanted was a cuddle from my mummy,’ he said. ‘Instead, Harry nicked my teddy bear and chucked it out onto the roof.’ 

It’s also been reported that Charlie made several ‘ginger’ jokes at good friend Harry’s expense. 

Charlie’s older brother Thomas van Straubenzee is also Prince William’s close childhood friend, and is the godfather to Princess Charlotte.
