Who ever imagined that eating like a (future) king would mean nipping out for a bit of fast food? Or, OK, sending a member of your royal entourage out to nab your order for you ...

But it so happens that Prince William is not above indulging in a bit of takeout. During an appearance at a government event in London, the man who is second in line to the British throne admitted that he quite enjoys the food at Nando’s, a fast-casual dining chain launched in South Africa more than three decades ago and now with locations all over the world, including in the U.S., and famous for its peri-peri chicken.

Yes, peri surprising! A member of his security detail turned him onto it, the prince told the chain’s founder, Robert Brozin, when he met him at the Commonwealth Heads of Government event.

"This man here is your biggest fan. He's introduced me to Nando’s. It's very good. He should buy a stake in Nando’s," William told Brozin, indicating one of the police officers assigned to protect him, the Daily Mail reports, noting that other celebrity fans of the chain include Oprah Winfrey, Jay Z, David Beckham, Ricky Gervais and Rihanna.

Brozin said he wasn’t at all startled to learn that the prince was a fan of his food because he and his younger brother were “people's people, which is so nice.”

"The beauty of Prince Harry and Prince William is that they're really accessible and they are guys that go out a lot -- I'm very happy that they've tried it," he said.

Harry eats fast food, too? Actually, why does that somehow seem less surprising?
