MEMPHIS, TN (CBSMiami/AP) — It’s a British invasion in Memphis, Tennessee this weekend. British Princes William and Harry have already been spotted at a downtown Memphis restaurant.
Local media reported the two arrived Thursday night 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 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.
Just before heading to Memphis, Prince Harry was spotted on Miami Beach at the Fontainebleau Resort.
A shirtless and smiling Prince Harry could be seen in Twitter pictures enjoying some South Florida sunshine.
