"I'm a big Prince Harry fan!" Darla Chapman told WREG. "I'm single! I heard he's single!"

Alas, the princes came in through a different entrance, so Chapman and the others never got a chance to see them.

But the young princes got out a good bit in Memphis.

On Thursday, they dined at the Rendezvous, one of the city's best-known barbecue restaurants. Dressed casually in jeans, they dashed inside as security held back the commoners pressing for a look.

On Friday they paid a visit to Presley's home, Graceland, the Memphis version of Buckingham Palace.

"It was pretty awesome," local Nicholas Pegues said of the visit. "A once in a lifetime event!"
