Prince Harry and Prince William spotted in Memphis ahead of friend's wedding

Prince William and Prince Harry have touched down in Memphis, Tenn., for their friend's wedding weekend.

Local media reported the British princes arrived Thursday night for a dinner party in a private room of Charles Vergo's Rendezvous restaurant.

Tennessee has been abuzz for weeks with speculation on whether William and Harry would travel to Memphis for the wedding of Guy Pelly, a London nightclub owner and longtime friend, to American hotel heiress Elizabeth Wilson.

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.

The wedding will reportedly take place Saturday at the Memphis Polo Club, not far from Graceland.

Earlier this week, the newly-single Harry, 29, was spotted in Miami for what Us Weekly reported as Pelly's bachelor party festivities. The prince and other guests reportedly hit up hot spots Hakkasan and LIV at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel.

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.
