9 incredible UK hotels where the royals will be spending their summer holidays


Summer is well and truly here, and in light of lockdown restrictions easing and overnight stays officially being allowed, we reckon our favourite royals will be planning a much-needed UK staycation to celebrate the summer holidays. The Duchess of Cambridge loves nothing more than kicking back at The Goring in London, and Claridge's has often played host to the Queen. As for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, when they return to the UK we can see the pair travelling to Oxfordshire, where they're rumoured to be building a house near the iconic Soho Farmhouse. Here's where we imagine the royals will be travelling to in the coming months…

The Goring, London

The only hotel to have been awarded a Royal Warrant for hospitality services, The Goring borders on the iconic walls of Buckingham Palace and nearby Knightsbridge. Boasting 69 sumptuous suites filled with lavish decor, it famously hosted the Duchess of Cambridge in its Royal Suite the night before her wedding in April 2011.

Soho Farmhouse, Oxfordshire

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently based in California, but reports say that the couple are planning on building a £3million holiday home in the Cotswolds, England. According to The Sun, they are looking to have a property nearby to the private members' club Soho Farmhouse – where Meghan hosted a spa-themed bridal shower in 2018.

Prince Harry and best man, Prince William headed to Coworth Park ahead of his upcoming nuptials to Meghan Markle. Stretching across 240 acres of picturesque parkland, we reckon the groom was swayed by the hotel's impressive equestrian centre and polo fields.

Ruthin Castle, Wales

An opulent retreat nestled alongside the Clwydian Range in Wales, Ruthin Castle is a particular favourite of Prince Charles, who stayed here the night before his investiture as Prince of Wales at Caernarfon Castle in 1969. A botanical beauty equipped with its own Italian gardens and surrounded by rustic woodlands, Ruthin Castle is truly a royal gem.

The Mandarin Oriental has hosted the Queen on several occasions and was most-notedly used for the pre-wedding celebrations of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011 which saw 142 royals attend. Adorned with chic contemporary decor, the hotel overlooks Hyde Park and Knightsbridge and is just a stone's throw from Sloane Street, Harrods, and Harvey Nichols.
