Prince William on Friday celebrated the marriage of one of his and Prince Harry‘s closest friends.

William served as an usher at the wedding of Hugh Grosvenor, the Duke of Westminster, and Olivia Henson. The couple wed at Chester Cathedral in Chester, England, about four hours outside of London.

William was seen mingling with guests as the wedding, which he attended solo, without his wife Kate, the Princess of Wales, who has stayed out of the public eye since announcing in March that she had been diagnosed with cancer.

William’s younger brother Harry, who now lives in California with his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and their two children, also did not attend the wedding.

Both William and Harry chose Grosvenor, their lifelong friend, to be the godfather to each of their respective eldest children, Princes George and Archie.
