(WMC) - The royal watch is on! Prince Harry and Prince William were spotted at Charles Vergo's Rendezvous on Thursday night.
The princes are in Memphis reportedly to serve as ushers in their longtime friend Guy Pelly's wedding on Saturday. Pelly is marrying Holiday Inn hotel heiress Lizzy Wilson, who is from Memphis.
The wedding party was at Rendezvous in Downtown Memphis, where WMC Action News 5 caught up with Pelly and Wilson.
When asked if they are happy, they responded with "yes."
Prince Harry reportedly landed at Wilson Air on a chartered plane in Memphis just after 5:30 p.m. After landing, a four-car motorcade left Wilson Air heading eastbound on Interstate 240, finally arriving at a house in East Memphis.
Super-fan Beverly McPhail flew in from Orlando. She filled WMC Action News 5 in on the princes' possible itinerary.
"I think they're going to Graceland tomorrow, and then I know a few people going to the wedding, so I'm kind of getting tidbits here and there," she said. "There was going to be a three-day affair, so, I said I'd come in Thursday and leave Sunday."
She started planning her Memphis trip as soon as she heard the princes might be in the Bluff City. McPhail went to London for William and Kate's wedding three years ago.
"I was literally outside Buckingham Palace during the procession, so I had a really good view at the wedding," she said.
Memphis Mayor A C Wharton stressed during a news conference that this weekend's event is private. He said police and others are fully prepared for the royal visit.
The princes are expected to be at Memphis Country Club for the rehearsal dinner Friday and the Memphis Hunt and Polo Club for the wedding Saturday.
Sources say the princes may indeed be touring Graceland, but no public appearances are scheduled.
