Prince Harry tries chicken and waffles for the first time in Harlem | national

Spice tea and crumpets, Prince Harry decided that he needed some soul food in his life and got himself right by eating some chicken and waffles at Melba in Harlem.

Page six reports that Harry and wife Meghan Markle was seen at the Cornerstone Restaurant. The Duke of Sussex had apparently never had the court and gave it a try on Friday (September 24) after visiting elementary school PS 123.

A roommate at the restaurant claims Meghan and Harry were served south-fried chicken and eggnog waffles along with spring rolls, catfish, collard greens and yams.

A spectator said to the outlet: “Harry said it was the first time he had ever tried chicken and waffles and noticed it was delicious.” They also added that Harry also noted that collardgreens were already a family favorite because Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, often makes the right to the couple.

Meghan and Harry also reportedly spent time talking Melba about City Harvest, a food rescue organization in New York that takes food that would otherwise be wasted from restaurants and distributes it to food programs in the city.

According to New York Post, the royal couple’s surprising appearance at the restaurant had many diners at other tables, so surprised that they were almost suffocated by their food.

“When they first pulled up, it was maybe two SUVs. My boss was like, ‘What’s going on?’ and I remember very clearly that I thought, ‘Either way, it’s probably a rich person, no need to stop eating.’ Then he said ‘It’s Prince Harry and Meghan!’ ”

Another patron looked at the couple’s big order and said to Markle, “I hope you did not eat too much for breakfast,” and made her laugh.

Melba Wilson, the restaurant’s owner, told The Post that the couple were “so friendly” and she was glad they stopped by.

“They’re shedding light on our community in Harlem in a tough time,” Wilson said.
