However, the restaurant owner’s husband Pierre turned down the royals’ request to dine at their eatery for a rather unexpected reason.

Pierre preferred not to host the Sussexes because of the amount of security that would be involved in having the royals dine with them.

“Horth Hill’s become a very popular place now,” Bev told the publication, admitting that she had spotted the royals out and about. “They jog around, so they’ve been seen.

“It’s kind of exciting. I hope everything goes fine for them. They’re breaking away from tradition and I just wish them all the best.”

“Let them have their peace and quiet,” she added. “For us to be so lucky to have them in the area, how lucky is that?

“I wish them all the privacy they can possibly get. They deserve it.”
