Prince Harry acknowledges that during Prince William’s wedding, he was asked to tell a flagrant lie.
According to his memoir, “Spare,” the Duke of Sussex was instructed to pretend to be his older brother’s best man at Kate Middleton’s wedding in order to shield the actual best men from criticism from the press.
Harry asserted, “It was a blatant deception to tell the world that I would be the best man.
“The palace had no choice but to declare that I was the best guy because the public had expected me to be.
He didn’t think it was appropriate to give me a live microphone and allow me to stray from the plan. I could say something completely unsuitable. He was not in error.
Harry went on to say that his deception prevented the “real” best men from being discovered.
“Also, the lie gave cover to James and Thomas, two civilians, two innocents,” said Harry.
“The wild media would have sought them out, hacked them, looked into them, and destroyed their families’ lives if they had been revealed as Willy’s best men. They shouldn’t have been expected to handle such a barrage because both of these gentlemen were quiet and reserved.
Harry continued in the story, “Willy explained all this to me, and I didn’t blink.” “I got it. We even chuckled over it.
