The newly single Prince Harry and his big brother, Prince William, will be traveling to the U.S. for a friend's wedding and they making a special trip to an American attraction: Graceland. The two will travel by themselves, leaving Duchess Kate and Prince George at home for a guys' weekend with their friends in Memphis, Tenn.
William and Harry will attend the nuptials of Guy Pelly, a London nightclub owner, to Elizabeth Wilson. The ceremony will take place at the exclusive Memphis Hunt and Polo Club in Tennessee, which consists of 200 acres of landscaped countryside. Only the elite are invited to the wedding, including the princes and their security team. However, that does not mean that William and Harry will not be able to partake in the bachelor festivities.
They will first visit the former home of American icon Elvis Presley, better known to the public as Graceland. It's unclear whether the wedding party has a private reservation for the tourist attraction, but it's likely given the amount of security needed for Prince William and Prince Harry, as well as the likely bodyguards of either guests or the bride and groom.
Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton told the press that the city was preparing for the royal visit.
"We are working on the presumption that the Royals will be here in Memphis this weekend. We are taking all precautions to be prepared," Wharton said.
The wedding party will then visit Beale Street in downtown Memphis to have dinner and drinks. Beale Street is another tourist attraction that has plenty of bars, shops, and restaurants to keep the attendants well-entertained. It will be one of the few times the princes will be allowed to perhaps cut loose and enjoy a relatively normal time as civilians.
And it will be the first time that Harry will be out and about without girlfriend of two years, Cressida Bonas. The two separated earlier this week amid reports that they were having serious issues and simply decided to part ways. Bonas was scheduled to attend the wedding with the brothers but will now obviously remain behind in Europe.
