Princes William and Harry made a royal visit to Memphis, Tennessee in preparation to attend a friend’s wedding.
According to Fox News, the two brothers were seen at a restaurant in the downtown area, at Charles Vergo’s Rendezvous. The wedding between London nightclub owner Guy Pelly and Elizabeth Wilson, who lived in Memphis and is heiress to the Holiday Inn, is said to be private.
Memphis mayor A.C. Wharton Jr. reportedly said the city “was ready to host the British royals.”
According to the Daily Mail, the wedding is being held at the Memphis Hunt and Polo Club, followed by a reception with a costume party theme. Other guests include Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
As well as being in town for the wedding, the royals also spent time visiting Graceland, the mansion of the legendary Elvis Presley. In order to have a private tour, the public was removed from the property.
A staff member reportedly said, “It is pretty special to have a future king take time to come visit The King.”
Pelly is a childhood friend of the royal brothers and had been considered a “bad influence” on them. He dressed as the Queen in 2005 at a party, which is also when Prince Harry infamously wore a Nazi uniform. Pelly also organized Prince William’s bachelor party, the Daily Mail reported.
Prince Harry recently made the news after his break up with Cressida Bonas. The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George are at home in England while the baby prince’s father and uncle attend the ceremony.
