Princes William, Harry spotted at Memphis restaurant

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Princes William and Harry were spotted at a downtown Memphis, Tennessee, restaurant Thursday night.

Local media reported the two arrived Thursday evening for a dinner party in a private room of Charles Vergo’s Rendezvous.

Tennessee has been abuzz for weeks with speculation on whether William and Harry would travel to Memphis for the weekend wedding of a friend.

A C Wharton Jr., mayor of the Tennessee city famous for blues and early rock and roll music, says Memphis was ready to host the British royals should they attend what he describes as a strictly private affair.

A busy weekend looms in Memphis with the start of the annual Memphis in May tourism event and The Beale Street Music Festival kicking off.
