Forget trying to find a hotel room in London next month. Stay on this side of the pond, where the Hotel St. Germain is hosting a spate of Royal Wedding festivities with pomp, pageantry, and kitsch to spare.
Start with a pinkie raising Royal Tea and Book Signing on April 28 from 1 to 3 pm. Sip the Queen’s favorite brew while you sample royal wedding cakes and listen to Dallas author Nancy Smith Becker, on hand signing copies of her new novel, Imperial Wedding of Old Paris. $30 per person.
Or how about Dinner with “The Queen” on April 28? A four-course gourmet dinner (with wine and Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV) paired with a viewing of The Queen. Chef Chad Martin’s adaptation of the actual 1953 Royal Coronation menu will include Filet de Boeuf Mascotte and Chocolate Roulade, Strawberry Galette. Seatings from 7:00pm
We love Breakfast in Bed, and on April 29th there’s good reason to book a room and stay nestled in. Guests who spend the night in one of the hotel’s luxury suites will wake up to breakfast in bed with the future King and Queen of England. How is this possible? Hotel St. Germain will bring you a full English breakfast in your suite while you laze about betting your fill of all of the televised Royal Wedding coverage.
Stick around for dinner that evening (April 29) when the hotel will be serving a formal Wedding Supper and a Screening of the film, The Kings Speech featuring the future King’s great-grandparents, George VI and the Queen Mother. A six-course menu (paired with wine and Bollinger Champagne) will include such English favorites as beef Wellington, roasted quail and stilton with poached pears and walnuts. Special remarks by Mr. David Huntley, representative of Historic Royal Palaces tip this party over the top. $150 per person. Seatings from 7:00pm
