The Duke of Cambridge -- Prince William -- plans to attend the wedding of his brother Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, despite doubts about it on a website called Inspiring Day.
"Prince William May Not Attend Royal Wedding Leaving Harry Without a Best Man; Princess Diana Would Not Be Happy," said a May 16 post on inspiringday.com.
"The latest news from sources is that Prince William is in the middle of a huge predicament, one that could change relationships," the inspiringday.com story said. "Prince William has to choose to either go to Prince Harry's wedding and stand by his side as the best man or choose to attend a soccer game."
Facebook flagged this story as part of its efforts to combat false news and misinformation on Facebook's News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.)
Prince William since May 2006 has been president of the Football Association, the governing body of English football, and usually presents the trophy to the winning team at the final match. The FA Cup final is on May 19, the same day of the royal wedding.
But that doesn’t mean Prince William plans to skip the wedding.
Kensington Palace announced on April 26 that Prince William would be Prince Harry’s best man at the wedding.
"The Duke of Cambridge is honoured to have been asked, and is very much looking forward to supporting his brother at St George's Chapel, Windsor on May 19th," Kensington Palace said in a statement.
BBC reported on May 16 that Prince William won’t go to the match.
BBC quoted a Kensington Palace spokesperson as saying: "The Duke of Cambridge will not be attending the FA Cup final due to his responsibilities as best man at his brother's wedding."
