But the prince took time off from planning for the big day by becoming guest editor of Radio 4’s the Today Programme.
World heavyweight champion Joshua was one of Harry’s big name guests along with former US President Barack Obama.
And after the pair messed about for pictures, British boxing hero Joshua decided to stake his claim for a starring role on May 19.
He tweeted a picture of himself with Harry, and wrote: “Back to work this morning! Congrats on everything this year and no pressure on the R4 guest edit.
“PS – need a best man?”

He added: “It’s important to be real – we do make mistakes, we aren’t perfect but we are trying.”

Joshua is now one of the biggest sporting superstars in Britain after establishing himself as the best heavyweight on the planet in 2017.
His thrilling 11th round knock-out victory over Wladimir Klitschcko at Wembley in April caught the imagination of the country outside of just boxing fans.
Since then celebrities around the globe have clamoured to meet the 28-year-old from Watford, who also won a gold medal at London 2012.
