Prince Harry enjoyed a quiet evening with his military friends at a rural Cornish countryside pub on Tuesday evening.
Harry visited the Smugglers’ Den Inn, a 16th century countryside pub in the heart of the north Cornish countryside tucked away in the picturesque hamlet of Trebellan.
The royal arrived at the pub around mid-evening and stayed away from the other guests in the pub.
Pub owner, Simon Hancock said: “We were thrilled to see him, he was with about half a dozen lads, they ordered some food and drinks and stayed for a couple of hours.
“It was a discreet visit, they sat away from everybody else, they didn’t have any special treatment, we wanted to be respectful of his private down time.”
Simon said: “Prince Harry was dressed down in jeans and a sweater, the group left after a few hours and split the bill, and they paid cash.”
The 17-year-old pub boasts a selection of traditional British pub classics which range from fish pie to Aberdeen Angus beef burgers. Prices for an evening meal range from anything from £2 to £22.
The third in line to the thrown was in the area on military training at Penhale Camp, near Holywell Bay, Newquay Cornwall.
