THE usually sleepy town of Bindoon had a brush with royalty when the visiting Prince Harry came to the famous Bindoon Bakehaus and ordered a banoffee eclair.
Staff at Bindoon Bakehaus all had a chance to meet the fourth in line to the throne.
Owner Leanne Phillipson said staff immediately recognised Prince Harry and described him as “just lovely”.
“He was with a whole bunch of other (military) crew and were here for about 15 minutes,” she said.
“He spoke to all the staff because we’ve got quite a few English staff that work here.
“He asked questions about what brought them out here. He was expecting to see them in Perth but not all the way out here.”
The pastry chef and counter staff all had a brush with royalty.
“We said ‘you don’t have to pay for it’ so he ended up putting the money into one of the charity bins,” Ms Phillipson said.
“He talked to all the staff and was extremely pleasant.
“We now have royal-approved banoffee eclairs.
“He said he’d heard lots of good things about the bakery and that the guys had said to him that they had basically paid for the refurbishment of the bakery because they come in here so often.”
