The Duchess of Cambridge
Britain's Duchess of Cambridge's wedding hotel has been awarded a Royal Warrant.
The Goring Hotel, where the 31-year-old royal spent her last night before marrying Prince William, has been given a 'Royal Warrant of appointment to HM The Queen for Hospitality Services' by Queen Elizabeth.
Jeremy Goring, whose family built the hotel in Belgravia, London over a century ago, said: 'To be able to display Her Majesty's coat of arms is something that the staff will be enormously proud of. It is made all the more special for us because I believe this is the first Royal Warrant the queen has ever granted to an hotel.'
Two billion people tuned in on April 29, 2011 to watch Duchess Catherine - then known by her maiden name Kate Middleton - exit the exclusive hotel and climb into the car waiting to take her to Westminster Abbey.
The Royal Warrant is usually a mark of recognition for regular suppliers of goods and services to the royal households. The Goring hotel will now be able to display the royal coat of arms on any adverts or printed media they produce.
The 69-bedroom hotel has been a favourite with the royal family since its opening and the coronation of both George VI and Queen Elizabeth saw the venue filled with foreign royalty.
