Prince Harry surprises Arizona restaurant patrons

GILA BEND, Ariz. (AP) - November 7, 2011

Friday's royal visit came as a big surprise to the staff and restaurant owner Antonino Buccellato. He tells The Arizona Republic Harry ate a pizza covered with pepperoni, bacon and sausage.

Locals have been wondering if they would get a chance to see the third in line to the British throne. Buccellato says patrons recognized the prince and began whispering and talking to one another, but nobody got up and asked to speak to him.

Prince Harry is in Arizona for Apache helicopter training at the Gila Bend Air Force Auxiliary Field.
