Prince William's dinner party turned away in Wales

Everyone wants to get close to Prince William as his wedding approaches -- but it turns out the future king can't always get the restaurant table he wants. William and a group of his friends were turned away from the Seacroft restaurant in Wales Sunday night because the establishment didn't have room to seat about 20 additional guests.

The operational commander of William's unit, Squadron Leader Iain "Spike" Wright, says one of the restaurant's chefs was off sick and it wasn't able to cope with the numbers. The group moved to another locale.

The restaurants are near to the Royal Air Force base where William serves as a helicopter search and rescue pilot.
