Even titled nobility like Prince Harry can kick back and enjoy the basic gastronomic pleasure of a hamburger – chased by a mojito.
So it was proved only recently at London's Hard Rock Calling music festival, where Harry rocked stage-side to the American band The Killers while he also chowed down from the concert's food menu.
"Harry has joined us at Hard Rock Calling twice now and each time he has visited our Hard Rock Cafe tent," says the Hard Rock's Orlando-based executive chef Jason Gronlund, who describes the chain's Classic Legendary Burger as "topped with seasoned bacon, two slices of Cheddar cheese, a crisp fried onion ring, lettuce, tomato and pickles."

Was it a case of royal stage fright?
Princess Eugenie, the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, may have had a choice seat near the stage for Beyoncé's concert at London's O2 Arena Tuesday. But when the singing star pointed the microphone in the young royal's face and asked her to belt out a line from "Irreplaceable" as she does to audience members each night, Eugenie blanched, according to a report from the U.K.'s Mirror.
According to the report, which cites an eyewitness, Beyoncé didn't apparently recognize Eugenie when she asked her to sing the line "to the left/to the left" in her hit song.
Instead, when she held the microphone out, Eugenie dodged the opportunity, ducking away in embarrassment and dropping to the ground, according to the Mirror report. "All Eugenie's friends were teasing her about her stage fright for hours afterwards," the paper reports, quoting a concertgoer.

All hail the Duchess of Cambridge: a newlywed and loving, devoted wife, a mother-to-be of the newest future king or queen and a gracious, charming public figure who, two years ago, became an instant style icon – from the moment she stepped out in a royal blue silk-jersey-wrap Issa dress on the day her engagement to Prince William was announced.

Willem-Alexander became the first Dutch king in more than a century Tuesday as his mother, Beatrix, abdicated after 33 years as queen.
The generational change in the House of Orange-Nassau gave the Netherlands a moment of celebration, pageantry and brief respite as this trading nation of nearly 17 million struggles through a lengthy recession brought on by the European economic crisis.
Visibly emotional, the much-loved Beatrix ended her reign in a nationally televised signing ceremony as thousands of orange-clad people cheered outside. Millions more were expected to watch on television.
King Willem-Alexander, who became the youngest monarch in Europe, gripped his mother's hand and looked briefly into her eyes after they both signed the abdication document in the Royal Palace on downtown Amsterdam's Dam Square.
Beatrix looked close to tears as she then appeared on a balcony, decked out with tulips, roses and oranges, overlooking some 20,000 of her subjects.

The Duchess of Cambridge may be the best thing to happen to Britain's retail economy yet.
Just days after she wore this pretty, $80 polka-dot number from Topshop's maternity line, the dress has completely sold out online (though it can still be found in stores).
And it's no wonder – the dress (which Kate paired with a Ralph Lauren blazer and her signature black suede pumps) had PEOPLE StyleWatch Facebook commenters using one word, "classy," to describe her royal maternity style.

Two years ago, Kate Middleton was becoming the Duchess of Cambridge, marrying Prince William in a ceremony watched by millions.
On her anniversary she immersed herself in a less-ceremonial undertaking, but one close to her heart – visiting Naomi House Children's Hospice for tea.
William, 30, meanwhile, was on duty with his helicopter search and rescue squadron at RAF Valley in north Wales.

Britain's young Royal Muggles had a magical day out with a visit to the studio where the Harry Potter movies were filmed.
Prince William, Kate and Prince Harry toured Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden near London, home to the newly launched Making of "Harry Potter" studio tour.
There, the royals, accompanied by 500 children and adults from charities they support, got a wand lesson, visited the Hogwarts Great Hall and saw props, costumes and models from the Potter series as well as some other movies.
"Where's my brother, why isn't he doing this?" William, brandishing a wooden wand, said during the lesson.
As Kate (who also had a wand, and wore a cream-colored dress with black spots from TopShop) and William giggled, they were given some "spell techniques' by tour guide Scott Heron, then asked to face a group of children called "Dumbledore's Army" – to whom William bellowed, "Expelliarmos!"

It may have been baby blue, but royal watchers shouldn't take it as a clue! Still mum on the sex of her offspring and wearing the first maternity dress of her pregnancy, the Duchess of Cambridge was radiant in an Emilia Wickstead cocktail gown for her Art Room gala Wednesday.
Described as a pale blue silk blend, full skirted summer dress, the custom creation was based on a dress in the current spring/summer collection from the New Zealand-born and London-based designer.
"It was made specially for the duchess," says a spokeswoman. "We've had a style in store that's very, very similar. So it was very slightly bespoke for her."

The Duchess of Cambridge has been receiving countless gifts ahead of her baby's arrival in July, but on Tuesday she was given something for the other little darling in her life – her beloved Cocker Spaniel, Lupo.
As Kate was heralded by hundreds of excited children celebrating St. George's Day, she was presented with a basket of goodies for the royal pup.
Among those greeting her at Manchester's Willows Primary School on Tuesday was student Chloe Pomret, 10, who joined the school's "executive dog," a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Henry, to present the expectant mother with roses and gifts for Lupo.
"Henry, you have gone to so much trouble," Kate, 31, said with a laugh, upon greeting the school's dog.
