When Prince Harry moved to California, it seems he gave up more than his status as a front-line working royal.
He gave up an occasional cheeky Nando's as well. It seems the Duke of Sussex has been spotted more than once enjoying the delights of the high street chicken chain.
But perhaps it's just as well that he’s said goodbye to Nando’s. Because, like his older brother William, it seems that Prince Harry can’t handle the heat. A disappointed Nando’s customer witnessed the Prince ordering the blandest thing on the menu.
Back in 2013, a customer at Nando’s Fulham Broadway restaurant had the "surreal" experience of seeing the royal forking out £24.05 on a takeaway dinner for himself and a pal.
Harry was seen fiddling with his mobile phone and chatting to his mate as the pair patiently waiting for their food at 11.50pm.
Two members of the Prince's personal security detail sat behind him during the 15-minute wait for his grub, reports the Daily Mirror.
An onlooker said at the time: "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 that Harry had been sitting on and shouted 'I’m on the Prince’s throne!' Nobody could believe what happened."
However, even way back then, Harry was no stranger to controversy.
The Prince ordered a chicken pitta with extra cheese. While in itself that’s a fairly standard option, but the former armoured reconnaissance troop leader’s spice level left a lot to be desired.
The pitta was the lemon and herb variety – the mildest flavour on offer in Nando’s.
It appears that, like his brother, Harry doesn't like his food too spicy.
There was also a side of creamy mash along with a double chicken wrap with chips – and to wash it all down Harry ordered a soft drink and a bottle of water.
He wore a green polo shirt, denim jeans, and a baseball cap to partially obscure his identity, according to a witness.
It was unclear whether Harry paid full price for his grub or took advantage of the 20% discount the chicken chain offers to military personnel.
The late-night visit certainly wasn't the only time Harry has been spotted enjoying a Nando's.
Back in 2009, he ordered a similar meal in Stevenage with a group of Army friends at a branch near their Hertfordshire base.
Unfortunately for the Queen's grandson, there are very few Nando’s branches in the US.
There are just 43 in the entire country and none within 100 miles of the luxury mansion Harry shares with Meghan Markle and their two children.
But perhaps he can find a nice local chicken shop with a menu that’s bland enough for his taste.
