We show that the ℋn-1-conjugacy classes of ℋn, where ℋn is the hyperoctahedral group on 2n elements, are indexed by marked bipartitions of n. This will lead us to prove that (ℋn ×ℋn-1,diag(ℋn-1)) is a symmetric Gelfand pair and that the induced representation 1diag(ℋn-1)ℋn×ℋn-1 is multiplicity free.
