Sometimes even the future King of England can't get a table!

Prince William and a group of 20 pals arrived to chow down at the five-star Seacroft Restaurant in Holyhead, Angsley (a section of Wales) for dinner Sunday, but the eatery turned them away.

William's Royal Air Force Squadron Leader Iain "Spike" Wright told the Associated Press: "The plan was to eat there, but unfortunately they had one of their chefs off sick so they weren't able to cope with the number that we had brought. And so we found another location, and we moved on."

Though they wouldn't comment on Sunday's incident, the restaurant's director told "William is always welcome here!"

Prince William's Air Force squad might not have have gotten to dine at their first choice restaurant, but the British paper The Telegraph confirmed that all 27 members of his squadron--and their partners--are invited to the prince's April 29 wedding to Kate Middleton, 29.
