Why Prince Harry can never again make a best man speech

We’ve all had one – you know the mate that suddenly decides it’s way better to hang out permanently with his new girlfriend and forsake watching the match in the pub with you, when he could be perusing the aisles of IKEA clutching a rolling pin an...

Father of the bride speech – settling the scores?
