The Royal Wedding

Royal Wedding Excitement

When the Royal Wedding was announced by The Royal Household in November 2017, the United Kingdom celebrated with HRH Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle. The ceremony and celebration took place on a glorious Saturday afternoon, 19 May 2018. At The Lanesborough, our team came up with some top tips in preparation for the big day.

Royal Suite

The Lanesborough Hotel’s seven-bedroom Royal Suite is a residence fit for a king, queen or head of state. Extending across a full corridor, The Royal Suite offers stately views of Buckingham Palace Gardens.

Top Tips

  • Save Your Seat
If you are planning to watch The Royal Wedding in a public place, we recommend you reserve your place well in advance. The celebration is sure to glue thousands to the television.

Top Tips

  • Record the Football
The celebration occurs on the same day as the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium in London. Usually, the Duke of Cambridge would present the trophy. We recommend you record the match or watch the highlights after the wedding celebration coverage.

Top Tips

  • Make The Most of the Day
Pub opening hours have been extended until 1am in the hope "that [a] relaxation of the licensing hours will allow people to extend their festivities and come together to mark what will be a very special moment for the country."

Little Royal Tea Party

In celebration of the Royal Wedding, we hosted a special Little Royal Tea Party on 13 May 2018.
