Newly-single Prince Harry ordered two meals at a Little Chef and scoffed both of them.
The young prince proved the split with Chelsy Davy has not hit his appetite by having a lasagne and a chicken and mushroom pie.
Prince Harry, 24, then polished off a pancake with sugar and lemon â€“ and two Cokes. Manageress Kim Briggs said: â€œHe must have been hungry. He asked for the main courses to come at the same time.â€
She said the dinerâ€™s cook, Sue, was â€œshaking like a leafâ€ â€“ but her food got the royal seal of approval. Kim said: â€œWhen Harry was asked if everything was satisfactory, he said, â€˜Absolutely amazing.â€™â€
Prince Harry called at the diner in Sleaford, Lincs, after helicopter pilot training with the Army Air Corps. He was with two other trainees and two bodyguards. Kim added: â€œHe seemed like a nice lad, very down to earth.â€
Meanwhile, the young royal survived a terrifying helicopter crash simulator dubbed the Dunker. He was strapped in the steel box before it was dropped 50ft into a tank of deep water.
The sinking â€œcockpitâ€ was rolled from side to side in the water.
Prince Harry, whose clothing had been deliberately snagged on a piece of metal, had to cut himself free to swim clear.
He had just 60 seconds of air in a miniature tank clipped to the front of his jacket.
Would-be pilots face the Underwater Escape Training Unit at the start of the 18-month Army Air Corps flying course.
Some go to pieces and are booted off the course. But Harry breezed through and will soon start flying for real.
