Finally the speculation ends, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s highly anticipated engagement is official. The royal wedding is set for April 29, 2011 in London and the country is in a frenzy with the details.
Currently the happy couple live in North Wales where William serves as an RAF search and rescue pilot although the future king and queen are often spotted in & about London … and we are certain to see more of them (too much maybe) before the big day. You might just run into the young royals in one of their frequented hotspots:
Gilmour’s – cozy, stylish neighborhood restaurant filled with Chelsea’s it crowd
Dans Le Noir – Clerkenwell’s famous dine in the dark restaurant experience
Tom’s Kitchen – traditional British fare in Chelsea, notable weekend brunch scene
Bluebird – more of the same chichi people dining in lovely spaces on gorgeous food … again, in Chelsea
CIRCUS – Covent Garden burlesque/caberet/acrobatic restaurant/club, open to the public
King’s Road in Chelsea – posh shopping avenue and home to many of the royal’s preferred dining choices
Wedding venues fit for a king:
St. Paul’s Cathedral – hmm, the prince gave Kate his mother’s engagement ring to keep Diana involved, might they also wed where his parents married?
Westminster Abbey – in the shadow of Big Ben and location of Princess Diana’s funeral
Buckingham Palace – not for the ceremony, but for the quintessential balcony wave to the people of course
