Prince Harry loves a cheeky Nando’s – but his order will upset many people

Prince Harry gave up a lot when he packed his bags and waved goodbye to the UK – leaving his royal title behind him – in favour of a new life in LA.

While we hope he’s enjoying spending time in the sunshine with wife Meghan Markle and son Archie, there’s one thing he might be missing – Nando’s.

Believe it or not, Harry is said to be a huge fan of everyone’s favourite peri-peri chicken chain, but they won’t have any restaurants in LA.

Both Harry and his brother Prince William love popping in for a cheeky Nando’s, and they’ve talked about it numerous times.

Prince Harry was introduced to the South African chain a few years back by his personal protection officer and has been spotted at the chain several times, including a midnight visit to the restaurant in Fulham Broadway, south west London in 2013.

Harry, who was 29 at the time, forked out £24.05 on his takeaway dinner for himself and a friend at 11.50pm on a Tuesday night.

Two members of the Prince’s personal security sat patiently behind him while he waited more than 15 minutes for his Portuguese inspired grub to be prepared.

Harry was seen fidgeting with his mobile phone and making animated hand gestures to his mate as the pair killed time to distract themselves from hunger.

A stunned onlooker said: “It was surreal. He was very charming and politely refused a member of staff who approached him for a picture. I was gobsmacked to see him.”

Another witness added: “Moments after he left the restaurant clutching his dinner in a paper bag a member of staff jumped on the bench the Harry was sitting on and shouted: “I’m on the Prince’s throne!’ Nobody could believe what happened.”

However not everyone will be particularly impressed by what the royal ordered from the Nando’s menu.

He ordered a pitta with extra cheese and a side of creamy mash, along with a double chicken wrap with chips.

He also got a soft drink and bottle of water.

However the pitta was lemon and herb, the chain’s mildest offering which many people see as a terrible order.

It’s unclear whether Harry – who wore a green polo shirt, denim jeans and a baseball cap partially disguising his face according to a witness – paid full price for the grub or took advantage of the 20 per cent discount the chicken-chain offers to military personnel.

After picking up their order Harry, who was dating Cressida Bonas  at the time, and his pal casually exited through the car park which is connected with the building.

The late night visit wasn’t his first trip to Nandos. He ordered a similar meal in Stevenage in 2009 with a group of Army friends at a branch near their Hertfordshire base.

And Harry isn’t the only royal who likes a cheeky Nando’s, and his brother Prince William has also spoken about his love for the chicken in the past.

The Duke met the co-founder of the restaurant chain Robert Brozin at an event, and said he loved the food.

Pointing to his protection order, he said: “This man here is your biggest fan, he’s introduced me to Nandos. It’s very good. He should buy a stake in Nandos.”
