On August 4, the Duchess of Sussex will be marking yet another memorable event. This time, it is her first birthday as a royal. She turns 37 and fans of the royal family are already looking forward to more information on how the new couple will celebrate.
However, the Duke and Duchess already have plans to attend the wedding of Charlie van Straubenzee, an old friend of Prince Harry. Both men were quite close as children while attending Ludgrove Prep School in Berkshire.
At the start of the summer, Straubenzee announced Prince Harry would be his best man but gave no details as per exact dates. While it may seem like a bit of the downer for the royal couple, it is still delightful that they will be sharing a happy moment with one of their dear friends.
Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who are currently holidaying with their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis in Mustique are expected to cut short their summer vacation to attend the wedding.
Prince Harry also has a special connection to the groom and his family. Thomas van Straubenzee who is Charles’ elder brother happens to be a godfather to Princess Charlotte. In addition, he was an usher at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding.
In many ways, the wedding between Charlie van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks is more gathering of family and friends and just might be one of the first weddings all four royals will be attending since Prince William and Meghan Markle said: “I do.”
It may seem like the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as still lounging in the buzz their wedding created, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge still have fans rooting for them.
Although the couple has not yet confirmed if they will be attending the event, hopes are quite high that they will. Fingers crossed.
