LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Here's a look at what's trending on the web today!

British royalty could visit Memphis in May

The town of Memphis could soon have a visit by British royalty.

The duke and duchess of Cambridge will reportedly be in Memphis next month for a wedding.

Prince Harry will also accompany Prince William and Kate on the trip to the states.

According to the London Sunday Times, the Memphis-born granddaughter of the man who founded the Holiday Inn hotels is getting married on May 3.

Her name is Elizabeth Wilson, and she is engaged to London nightclub owner Guy Pelly, a close friend of the royal family.

The couple has reportedly asked William and Harry to be ushers at the wedding.

The Sunday Times said the outdoor wedding at the Memphis Hunt and Polo Club will kick off a three-day party, including a private visit to Graceland.

Our CBS affiliate in Memphis said they've reached out to the Wilson family but have not had these reports confirmed.

Texting driver crashes, misses officer

A scary reminder of the dangers of texting and driving: An officer in Midwest City, Oklahoma was almost hit during a routine traffic stop because another driver wasn't paying attention.

Authorities said the driver was traveling in the same lane as the traffic stop but because she was on the phone she didn't see the police car until it was too late.

Luckily, the officer was able to get out of the way.

Interns claim to have created Dorito-shell taco

The Dorito-shell taco has been a billion dollar success for Taco Bell, and now, a group of interns claim they came up with the idea nearly 20 years ago.

They say they have the pictures to prove it. One of the former interns told the Huffington Post that she and her group came up with the idea as part of a Taco Bell sponsored contest in 1995.

Andrea Watt even provided photos of the promotional materials that the group created for the product, which they called "Doritos Tacos."

Watt said her group lost the Taco Bell contest and was told the idea wasn't marketable.

New trend: tipping over smart cars

Cow-tipping has now given way to car-tipping in some areas.

Columbus, Ohio is the one of the latest cities to be hit by the trend.

Police found a smart car tipped over Wednesday morning near the Ohio State University campus.

Officers said vandals also tried to flip over a second vehicle.

Car-tipping incidents have been popping up nationwide.

On Tuesday, police in San Francisco said vandals tipped over several smart cars there.
