The hotel also gifts guests a slice of chocolate biscuit cake, the kind served at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. The service costs $47 per person plus tax and gratuities. The hotel’s Coq D’Or bar and restaurant offers a specialty royal cocktail menu during the month of May including the Queen’s favorite gin and dubonnet; Prince Phillip’s favorite English bitter; and Prince Charles’s favorite martini.
On the big day, the property will host a special luncheon with a screening of the royal wedding.
