MEMPHIS — British Princes William and Harry have 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.
