If you were to create a fake newspaper for me, as a prop in the one-woman show of my life, or just as an overly detailed birthday card, or even a real newspaper called Julia Daily!, this is the sort of headline you’d put on the front page. But this time, it’s a real headline from US Weekly.
Three weeks after he drank and danced at a San Diego area bar, Harry — who arrived in the U.S. October 7 — has moved on to Arizona, and recently enjoyed an Italian dinner feast with his British officer pals.
Dining at the Little Italy Italian Restaurant — located at 502 E. Pima St. in Gila Bend — on Friday evening, Harry polished off an entire pizza pie (with meat toppings!) by himself, the eatery’s owner, Antonino Buccellato tells Us Weekly.
Clad in street clothes, the hungry royal — dining with a party of 29 others — was recognized by fellow diners, but was able to enjoy his meal relatively uninterrupted.
“The customers recognized him and they were talking to each other and told each other they recognized him,” Buccellato explains of his patrons, who were monitored by the royal’s security staff. “They were polite and no one stared.”
In addition to polishing off the whole pie, Harry is said to have offered quite the vote of confidence to Little Italy’s manager. “All I can tell you is that this is the best pizza in the world,” Buccellato — who co-owns the eatery with wife Maria — recounts the royal as saying.
I’m just sad there isn’t a photo of Harry shotgunning a pizza, Liz Lemon style.
