While we presume the Royal Warrant distinction could mean more royal events will take place at the Goring (hello, baby shower!), the place is not totally off-limits to commoners. In fact, room rates at the five-star independent and family-run property start at just 335 GBP a night. However, if you do happen to see a royal at the hotel, remember no tweeting!
Kate Middleton's Wedding Hotel Has Received a 'Royal Warrant' from the Queen
This hotel received an official "thumbs up" from the Queen.
Despite our initial pause about the term "Royal Warrant", no one at The Goring Hotel in London's swank Belgravia nabe is getting arrested. Rather, the Royal Warrant decree establishes the hotel as the Royal Family's "official favorite hotel of choice." It's the first time ever the Queen has bestowed the award on a hotel.
Not that we needed some fancy schmancy decoration from the Queen to understand how much the Royal Family loves the spot. After all, this is where Kate spent her last night as a commoner in the hotel's top floor suites. It's also where several of the royals retreated post-nuptials to let their hair down and have some real fun. Perhaps too much fun in Prince Harry's case. But the hotel isn't just a joint for stuffy royals. In fact, a pretty sexy bridal lingerie photoshoot inspired by Kate also happened at the hotel in 2011.
