The girls joined the guys for a tour of Elvis Presley’s home Graceland, and Princess Beatrice even sported Elvis-style sunglasses as they walked the grounds that the King of Rock and Roll once called home.
A lavish brunch back at the Memphis Hunt and Polo Club on Sunday signified an official end to the celebratory weekend.
Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, along with Prince William and Prince Harry provided fans with many celebrity sightings at various spots all around Memphis during the past few days. They lined the streets outside of the barbecue restaurant Rendezvous in hopes of catching a glimpse–as well as a few photos–of a prince or a princess.
Even though fans have found it to be very exciting, some Memphis locals might actually welcome the peace and quiet once the royals leave town.
