LONDON With the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton just weeks away, The Ritz has launched its Monarchy & Matrimony package. Patriotic decorations are taking center stage in the legendary hotel, exclusive commemorative gifts are being given to guests and a royal wedding brunch will be prepared in Ritz Restaurant.
The quintessentially British institution of afternoon tea at The Ritz is a must for those visiting London during the royal wedding.

Priced from £50 per person, afternoon tea will also include a commemorative souvenir menu and an exclusive limited-edition chocolate heart bearing the initials of the royal couple.
The Ritz Restaurant will host an extravagant royal wedding brunch between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Themed food stations will offer a wide selection of hot and cold dishes while an outdoor grill on the terrace will be at the ready, taking advantage of the spring sunshine. Screens streaming live coverage of the wedding will be displayed throughout the room. Priced from £150 per person, the royal wedding brunch includes a glass of Champagne to toast, a commemorative souvenir menu and an exclusive limited-edition decorative keepsake embroidered with the initials of the royal couple and their wedding date.
