In a delightful prelude to his 39th birthday, Prince Harry, accompanied by his beloved wife Meghan Markle, treated himself to a memorable evening at Im Goldened Kessel, a local restaurant in Dusseldorf. The royal couple was joined by a group of aides, transforming the night into an enchanting celebration.

This unexpected rendezvous garnered significant attention as they relished an assortment of traditional German dishes, including bratwurst, red cabbage, and mashed potatoes. Laughter filled the air as Harry and Meghan engaged in joyful banter throughout the evening, with Harry savoring six beers while Meghan indulged in one.

The restaurant's staff, understandably elated by their prestigious guests, were overjoyed when the couple graciously agreed to take photographs with them. Adding a dash of regal charm to the evening, the restaurant staff surprised Prince Harry with a delectable white chocolate cake, a gesture that perfectly encapsulated the spirit of his impending birthday.

Thea Ungermann, the owner of the establishment, disclosed that Prince Harry generously settled the bill for the entire group and left a substantial tip, exemplifying his gracious nature. "The couple were very relaxed, they drank our beer, Schumacher Alt - it's the same beer they are serving at the Invictus Games," she shared, highlighting the couple's familiarity with the local culture.

Throughout the meal, Prince Harry and Meghan sat closely, basking in the warmth of each other's company.

Thea Ungermann further expressed her excitement, stating, "I had goosebumps when they walked into the restaurant.

I had watched his speech on the stage at the Invictus Games and couldn't believe he was in my restaurant. Prince Harry was so lovely and gave me a hug," encapsulating the surreal nature of the evening. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are scheduled to stay in Dusseldorf, Germany, until the conclusion of the Invictus Games on Saturday.

Afterward, they will return to their residence in Montecito, California. Interestingly, Prince Harry's older brother, Prince William, is expected to be in the United States at the same time as the couple. However, due to their hectic schedules, it is unlikely that they will have the opportunity to meet.

Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, is also making headlines with his trip to New York for New York Climate Change Week. An aide explained, "This trip is part of his evolution as a global statesman, which is incredibly important, especially since becoming Prince of Wales.

He and his courtiers have been contemplating how to manage that transition from Duke of Cambridge to the next king." The Prince of Wales is deeply committed to environmental issues and aims to play a pivotal role in global discussions on climate change. His presence in New York serves as a testament to his dedication to the cause.
