Memphis Airport Ready For Royal Family’s Arrival

(Memphis) Wedding bells are in the air, and the royal family will shortly be as well.

Princes William and Harry are expected to fly into Memphis Thursday for a friend’s wedding.

The group with the royal family is expected to come to Memphis on multiple planes. One is expected to land at Wilson Air, and the others at Memphis International Airport.

“We expect them to arrive tomorrow,” said Glen Thomas, spokesperson for Memphis International Airport.

Thomas says the Royal Guard has asked the airport to keep the arrival times under wraps, but soon Prince Harry and William will be in the Mid-South.

They’re going to be in their friend Guy Pelly’s wedding, who is marrying Memphian Elizabeth Wilson. She’s the granddaughter of Kemmons Wilson who founded Holiday Inn and also Wilson Air Center.

It’s the same terminal the royal family may use Thursday.

Memphis International Airport Police will be helping with security no matter which terminal they go through.

“Our airport police has been contacted,” said Thomas. “And they will be talking to their representatives again today.”

Thomas says the airport’s main priority is to make sure the royal family arrives in Memphis safe.

Workers for Wilson Air say all types of celebrities fly into their facility and they never leak information about their plans.

Workers say the Wilson family also has a private landing strip at their home so it’s also possible the royal family could land there.

Either way, the royal brothers are coming to Memphis for a wedding at the Hunt and Polo club, possibly dinner on Beale Street and their presence is guaranteed to have reporters worldwide flying-in to Memphis to capture their every move.
