In December, rumors swirled that Prince Harry already asked Prince William to be his best man because Meghan Markle's fiancé was also his older brother's best man during his 2011 wedding.
"Harry has several close guy friends, but there's no way he would ask anyone but William to take on the top job," said a source.
