Prince Harry Parties in Miami Ahead of Pal's Wedding, Misses Mark Shand's Funeral
The 29-year-old royal arrived stateside ahead of good friend Guy Pelly's wedding (to Holiday Inn heiress Lizzy Wilson), which will take place in Memphis, Tenn., this weekend. An insider tells Us that a group of Pelly's best friends went out for the groom's bachelor party Wednesday night, to local hotspots Hakkasan and LIV in Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
According to another source, Harry dined at Hakkasan with a group of 13 guests. They ordered dishes like the crispy duck salad, Dim Sum, Chilean sea bass, stir-fried Bahamian lobster, and charcoal grilled silver cod. The same insider adds the group "stayed after close" to enjoy cocktails, tea, and coffee. London nightclub owner Pelly, Harry, and the entourage then hit LIV nightclub, where they listened to songs by Pharell and Imagine Dragons spun by DJ Politik.
Harry's trip unfortunately coincided with another engagement back in the U.K. Neither he nor his brother, Prince William, attended the funeral of their stepmother Duchess Camilla's brother, Mark Shand, who died last Wednesday after suffering a head injury in NYC.
Harry's latest night out comes hot on the heels of his breakup from Cressida Bonas. An insider told Us of their split: "It just felt right for both of them to end it. They're at different places in their lives right now." According to the source, the breakup was a mutual choice. "It was a really tough decision to make, but they made it together.
Both William and Harry will be ushers at the wedding Saturday, May 3. Bonas was originally expected to attend the wedding with her former flame, but a source tells Us that plans shifted last week. According to the insider, Harry said he and William were making a "brothers catch-up thing out of it."
