Ricky Gervais - Ricky Gervais Offered Prince Harry Help With Speech

Ricky Gervais contacted Prince Harry ahead of Britain's royal wedding on Friday (29Apr11) to offer his help writing gags for the young royal's best man speech.
Harry acted as chief groomsman as his brother Prince William married Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge in a lavish ceremony in London on Friday (29Apr11).
The prince reportedly followed tradition by giving a speech at his brother's wedding reception, and Gervais has now revealed he sent Harry a text message offering his assistance.
In a post on his blog, Gervais writes, "I sent Prince Harry a text today offering to gag up his best man speech. (True.) He said he was fine. Hmmm? If I hear he's (made any risque jokes) I will sue obviously. I also reminded him it wasn't fancy dress."
Gervais, who has previously admitted he had no interest in following the royal nuptials, adds, "On a serious note; I really like Harry. I like William too and really wish the happy couple all the best, as I would anyone on their wedding day. But... really. Enough already... Still, mustn't grumble. I suppose everyone gets a day off... Congrats Will and Kate... There. I joined in."
