To commemorate the historic occasion of the marriage of His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton, The Ritz announces a long weekend of grand celebrations to mark the Royal Wedding.
The date has been set, the gold-embossed invitations have been sent, and the country is brimming with anticipation. Now, with the marriage of His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton just weeks away, The Ritz is delighted to launch its Monarchy & Matrimony accommodation programme alongside a long weekend of Ritz en fête, with patriotic decorations taking centre stage in the hotel, exclusive commemorative gifts for guests and a sumptuous Royal Wedding Brunch in the majestic Ritz Restaurant. With an enviable location only moments away from Buckingham Palace and Clarence House, The Ritz is the premier destination to immerse yourself in the excitement and splendour of a regal affair and a nation in celebration.
To celebrate the Royal Wedding at The Ritz is to celebrate the occasion in the surrounds of your
very own palace, cosseted within sumptuous Louis XVI inspired interiors that have been the home away from home for British and international Royalty since the hotel’s opening in 1906. Within the gilt-edged walls of this grand London landmark His Royal Highness The Duke of Windsor dined and danced in The Palm Court, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 80th birthday and His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales awarded the hotel the honour of a Royal Warrant.
