A Right Royal Round Up

April 27th 2011
The 29th of April 2011, is the day Prince William will break a thousand hearts as he marries his soon-to-be princess Miss Catherine Middleton. Wherever you are in the world there is no escaping the Royal Wedding, so instead of booking a one way flight to Necker Island, why not try out one of the fantastically royal treats we have found for your enjoyment. One is amused...

A Right Royal Treat
A fanfare selection of royally inspired treats complete with bejewelled his ‘n’ hers crowns, royal carriage, delicate wedding cake, and even a miniature Westminster Abbey – all packaged in a beautiful commemorative tin.
The Biscuiteers limited-edition Royal Wedding tin contains 16 biscuits and is priced at GBP38.50.

A Country Affair
Why not escape the madness of London, and indulge your Royal Wedding obsession at Sanctum on the Green in the heart of rural Berkshire. Watch William and Kate walk down the aisle live on the big screen, take an afternoon dip in the pool, sip Pimms at the rustic vintage style bar and delight in the menu created by Michelin star chef John Burton-Race.
Room rates from GBP120


A Little Thank You
Thanks to the upcoming Royal nuptials, the humble British public have an extra day off from the office. So what better way to show your appreciation for the happy couple than with one of the commemorative ‘Thanks For The Free Day Off’ plates from John Lewis.
Priced at GBP12

The Crown Jewels
Indulge your taste buds and your royalist passion with the ‘Royal Bejeweled Afternoon Tea’ at Flemings Hotel in Mayfair. Sip a Queen Bee Champagne Cocktail a la Miss Middleton, and sample the glittering Victoria sponge, rose and honey Madeline’s and jeweled lavender cupcakes. Fit for a princess indeed.
The Royal Bejeweled Afternoon Tea is available at GBP32.50 per person

A Regal Feast
You are cordially invited to a Royal gala dinner, courtesy of Quaglino’s. A sumptuous 3 course dinner, a live swing band and a £10 donation to the happy couple’s Charitable Gift Fund make this a no brainer: celebrate in style with some British favourites – we’re talking smoked salmon, crab, asparagus and a delightful sounding lemon tart – and give Wills and Kate your own little wedding gift.
60 pp, including a GBP10 donation to William and Kate’s Charitable Gift Fund.


‘It all started with a cup of tea’
Nothing screams British more than a good old cup of tea; these little beauties from Liberty of London are the perfect addition to any Royal Wedding breakfast. It’s not everyday that you can have Wills and Kate reclining in your cup, casually draping their arms over the rim and brewing you up a treat.

I Heart Wills & Kate
Anya ‘I’m not a plastic bag’ Hindmarch may well have outdone herself with her Royal Wedding Kit. A special William and Kate Union Jack flag (to wave like mad), a pocket of red white and blue confetti (heart shaped to shower them with your love) and a Wills & Kate crest tattoo (just to confirm your devotion) all come lovingly packed into a specially designed Anya Hindmarch tote.
Anya Hindmarch,



Camp Royale
London’s biggest sleepover with a distinctly royal theme is coming to Clapham Common this weekend. Join fellow Wills & Kate fans at Camp Royale, for 3 days of camping and garden party delights fit for a King. There are giant screens to watch the wedding itself, and a village fete vibe with coconut shies and wet sponges, face-painting and balloon modelers. Acrobats, a silent disco and wedding reception tunes will keep the party going long into the evening.
Weekend camping tickets are priced at

Royalty Al Fresco
Who needs an invite to the palace when you can enjoy a veritable feast straight from a Fortnum’s wicker picnic basket? Start with some beef carpaccio and horseradish, or tuck into dressed lobster and garden salad. A slab of Cropwell Bishop Stilton might take your fancy – especially with walnut wafers – while a red fruit tart and Fortnum’s finest champagne truffles will make it the picnic to end all picnics, washed down smoothly with a bottle of Touraine Sauvignon.
Fortnum & Mason, GBP200,
