Stop the presses! Prince Harry still has not asked Prince William to be his best man. With the 33-year-old set to tie the knot with Meghan Markle on May 19, we’re having some difficulty processing this information. In early January, William was chatting to British radio host Roman Kemp as part of a group discussion at the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM). The DJ bravely prodded about the impending royal wedding, and more importantly, the role he’ll be playing.

Laughing, William confessed, “He hasn’t asked me yet, just to clear that up. It could be a sensitive subject.” Despite not having the top job, Will’s still considers himself as Harry’s best man. The proud dad is helping the charity with their latest venture the “Best Man Project” — which helps to celebrate men’s friendships.

The 35-year-old confessed he’s very close to Harry. Wills explained their bond is like no other because of the experiences they’ve gone through, including the heartbreak they both suffered following the passing of their mother Princess Diana, back in 1997. “Our relationship is closer than it’s been because of the situation we’ve been through.”

“Losing our mother at a young age it’s helped us travel through that difficult patch together. You’re like-minded. You go through similar things, it’s a bond and it’s something you know you’ve tackled together and come out better for it.” William clearly adores his “best mate.” The Prince continued to say, “That’s the thing about being a best mate, inevitable one of you is sometimes on an up while the other is on a down. You’re always there for each other and repaying that favor.”
