Relax like a Royal…
Falling on Friday 29 April, the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton means the second long weekend in a row for us lucky Brits – so what have you got planned?
If you’re planning to stay in London, like me, why not enjoy a truly Royal weekend? Kick start the royal festivities with afternoon tea at The Goring, where Kate Middleton’s family will be staying in the run-up to the wedding, followed by a stroll past Buckingham Palace and through Green Park to Flemings Hotel, Mayfair, where you can toast the happy couple with one of the hotel’s specially created ‘Kate & Wills’ cocktail. A delicious concoction of Perrier Jouet Champagne and mixed berries and Armagnac, the cocktail will work wonders in putting Royal spectators in a party mood!
If you’re hoping to escape wedding madness and be treated like royalty yourself, try 51 Buckingham Gate’s Royal Experience, which includes a seven night stay in the Royal Suite where you’re treated to a personal butler, shopping trips to Harrods as well as visits to other Royal favourites such as the Royal Opera House. After a week of London living, guests are whisked away to India to stay at Taj Rambagh Palace in Rajasthan with activities such as Elephant polo, before a seven night safari in the heart of the Indian jungle at Pench National Park - all guaranteed to make you feel like a modern day Maharaja!
Happy Royal wedding weekend!
