During his best man speech, Prince Harry reportedly made a crack about the Duke of Edinburgh’s height, saying Kate Middleton dwarfed him in her three-inch heels, and Kate’s sister, Pippa “did not appear amused,”
according to The Daily Mail. Earlier in the day, at an afternoon champagne reception thrown by the queen for 650 guests,
The Daily Mail reported that Prince Charles gave a touching speech: “He said they were really lucky to have a daughter like her,” according to Kate’s former primary school headmaster. Then Charles really brought the house down. Susie Lea, a friend of the Middleton family, told The Daily Mail, “The Prince of Wales made a few jokes about his bald patch and his son’s bald patch, saying it must be hereditary.” She added, “He was stood slightly up on a small stand so he was looking down on William to his left. William smiled, he was amused. Kate looked amused as well.”
The Daily Mail also reported that Prince William was worried about 3-year-old bridesmaid
Grace Van Cutsem, who famously clapped her hands over her ears as the couple stood out on the balcony exchanging kisses. Back inside the palace, the prince was caught on camera commenting to Kate, Prince Charles and Camilla: “Did you see how terrified Grace looked? Grace, she was like with her hands on her ears,” reported The Daily Mail. He then mimicked Grace’s celebrated gesture.
