A witness spoke to the


about the "


" moment a convoy of luxury cars pulled up at the eatery."There was massive security and

everyone was wondering who on earth had turned up

– then we realised it was the duke," the onlooker said. It is not thought that the Queen's husband, 93, ordered any food while in the restaurant, although members of his team reportedly bought coffee.Even the

Little Chef's £10.99 Royal Breakfast

couldn't tempt the royal – "Next time he might go for that," a spokesman for the chain commented.Philip was on his way to the

Lowther Show

when he made the pit-stop. He is the patron of the countryside event and has missed only a handful of shows since they began 35 years ago.The duke joined an estimated

60,000 spectators over the three days

at the show, during which he helped to judge the carriage driving competition.
