Prince Harry was the best man and ring bearer for Prince William at his wedding with Kate Middleton.Kate Middleton had been quite close to her brother-in-law Prince Harry during the initial days of her marriage, before things went downhill in the royal family.
The Duke of Sussex, who was the best man at Prince William and Kate’s 2011 nuptials had famously made his new sister-in-law cry by delivering a heartfelt and touching best man speech.
“It was affectionate, warm, and funny and touched William deeply. And when he said the couple’s decade-long romance was his inspiration… Kate shed a tear,” wrote Nicholl.
“At one point, Harry is said to have called William ‘the perfect brother’ and said he loved Kate ‘like a sister.’”Before the two brothers drifted apart, they were inseparable as Harry was the best man and ring bearer for William.
Kate Middleton and her family used to vacation in the area when she was a child.Kate Middleton is right at home on the farm!
Kate and Prince William traveled to the mountainous region of Lake District (where Kate spent happy childhood vacations) on Tuesday to talk to farmers — and get their hands dirty by helping with a bit of sheep shearing.
After William expertly sheared a sheep while Kate looked on, it was the royal mom’s turn.Grabbing the shearing clippers from the instructor, Kate listened to the instructions and asked, “So, turn it on?” The instructor quickly showed her the ropes, and Kate replied, “Yep,” and went for it.
The sheep began kicking wildly as she started to shear the animal, but she didn’t flinch or lose her grasp once. She even looked up and smiled as the crowd laughed. Shearing is a necessary practice, and doesn’t typically hurt sheep — it’s just like getting a haircut. Wool continues to grow if not shorn, making the sheep uncomfortable. It can even lead to skin sores and damaged fleece as the wool causes the fleece to felt on the sheep’s body.
