The one royal rule Prince Harry might break at his wedding

Prince Harry hasn't been shy about breaking royal protocol on one or two occasions. In fact, our favorite red-haired royal has been spotted getting cuddly with his fiancée, Meghan Markle, in public—a strict no-no for royal couples in the past. (Thankfully, he isn't alone. Here are 12 more times the royal family has broken their own protocol.)

Now that Prince Harry is planning his wedding to Meghan, some might expect another departure from tradition. So far, though, the big occasion appears to be going by the book. The fiancée, the date, and even the venue are all Queen Elizabeth-approved.

There is one slight deviation, however. Rumor has it that Prince Harry will ask Prince William to be his best man. But doing so would depart from past British royal weddings, which traditionally do not include a best man in the proceedings. The groom typically chooses a "supporter," instead, royal expert Marlene Koenig told Town & Country.

It wouldn't be the first time this rule has been broken. Prince William asked Prince Harry to be his best man at his wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011, too. On the other hand, these are the etiquette rules the royal family must always follow.

Nothing has been officially confirmed yet, of course. But the word on the street is that Prince Harry won't hesitate in asking his brother to stand beside him on his big day. "Harry has several close guy friends, but there's no way he would ask anyone but William to take on the top job," an anonymous source told US Weekly.

There are still plenty of other royal customs to sort out before Harry's bride walks down the aisle, though. For example, this is why Meghan won't technically be called a princess.
