(WMC) - British princes William and Harry stopped in for a tour of Graceland on Friday.

The royal brothers are in town for the wedding of Lizzy Wilson, granddaughter of Holiday Inn founder Kemmons Wilson, and club owner Guy Pelly.

They received a private tour of Elvis' mansion with some of the wedding party.

Diane Coll and her friends are visiting, also, from Great Britain.

"Pretty exciting stuff isn't' it? We didn't know until yesterday that the Princes were here [in Memphis]," she said. "We've come for the Beale Street Music Fest weekend and Graceland ... I'm a big Elvis fan, and yeah, great excitement today with the princes."

Word quickly spread that Prince William and Prince Harry would be touring Graceland, but they didn't go through the main entrance. Their motorcade lead them through a different gate.

But fans did get a glimpse of the Princes as they entered the King's home. A quick private tour ended in the Garden.

Paparazzi lined the stone wall all trying to get a glimpse of the brothers, who were with the London Night club owner and his bride-to-be.

The Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau says you cannot buy this kind of publicity in Memphis. They say the royals have been doing and experiencing all the things tourists visit in city like Rendezvous, Graceland, and who knows where else.

WMC Action News 5 heard they Princes may have been by St. Jude on Friday morning, but we have not been able to confirm that.

The wedding is Saturday, and the rehearsal dinner, which the princes attended, took place Friday night at Memphis Country Club.

The Country Club was also open for members on Friday, but they had to go through extra security to get in.
