Prince Harry could return to UK for wedding of his unofficial best man


Prince Harry could be returning to the UK for the wedding of his ‘unofficial best man’, it has been claimed.

Jack Mann featured in the ‘band of brothers’ photograph, shown during the Sussexes’Netflix documentary, and taken at Windsor Castle as Harry, 39, tied the knot withMeghan Markle, 41.

The photograph showed the Duke of Sussex in a huddle with six of his closest pals – and reportedly it has been suggested since that Jack was actually Harry’s ‘unofficial best man’ – even though it wasPrince William that stood by his side as he married Meghan.

Now it has emerged that Jack, 40, is set to marry Isabella Clark, an osteopath and the daughter of property hotshot Stephen Clark.

Diary editor Richard Eden, writing in theDaily Mail, speculated: “Perhaps Harry will now return the favour.”

He added: “Neither Jack nor Isabella have publicly uttered a word about their impending nuptials. Their aversion to the spotlight is perhaps understandable.”

Harry and Jack became pals at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and both were commissioned into the Blues and Royals.

Jack is the son of SAS officer turned mercenary Simon Mann, whose alleged bid to overthrow the government of Equatorial Guinea in 2004 saw him spend five years in prison. Mr Eden wrote: “Mann Snr survived five years' captivity and returned home intact.”

Jack served with the British Army in Iraq and Afghanistan before establishing Alma Risk – a private security company – in 2015.

Last month, he was held by security officials in Malta while travelling to war-torn Libya.

“We did not continue the journey from Malta on the advice of Maltese immigration to rectify our paperwork,' Mann told the Daily Mail, adding that Alma Risk was intending to provide medical training for Libyan clients.

Harry’s tell-all book Spare was released earlier this month, becoming thefastest-selling non-fiction book ever – with the English language editionselling more than 1.4 million copies on its first day of publication.

While for years the public believed Prince Harry and Prince William acted as each other’s best man on the wedding days, the Duke revealed in his memoir that this wasnot actually the case.

In his memoir, Harry revealed he actually picked “old friend” Charlie to be best man and also claimed William didn’t show up to drinks the night before his wedding to Meghan.

Harry wrote: “I asked what was really happening. Was he sulking because he wasn’t my best man? Was he annoyed because I had asked my old friend Charlie instead? (‘The Royal Family announced Willy was the best man as they had done with me when he and Kate got married. Did that have something to do with it?’)”

The Charlie mentioned is believed to be Charlie van Straubenzee, a school friend of Harry’s. According to reports, Harryreturned the favour at Charlie’s wedding to filmmaker Daisy Jenks in the summer of 2018.
