  • Date: Tuesday, 07 June 2011

Following the official announcement that the Royal newlyweds will move to Kensington Palace later this month, the five-star boutique Milestone Hotel, which overlooks the beautiful Royal palace and gardens, is delighted to celebrate the arrival of the happy couple with the specially designed ‘William and Catherine’ cocktail. 

Guests can also enjoy a taste of Royal life with the hotel’s ‘Live Like Royalty’ package, staying in suitably named rooms such as The English Rose, The Kensington Palace Studio, The Regency Suite, The Princess Suite or The Buckingham Suite and with entrance to Buckingham Palace included.  Even better news is that from July, guests visiting Buckingham Palace under The Milestone’s ‘Live like Royalty’ package will be able to view the Duke and Duchess’ wedding cake and The Duchess of Cambridge’s exquisite wedding dress, which go on display for the summer season.

Created by Head Bartender Markus Rottensteiner, who is renowned for his inventive cocktails, the ‘William and Catherine’ cocktail combines the delicious flavours of Williams Pear, Williams Pear Schnapps and Champagne. 

The Milestone’s ‘Live like Royalty’ package includes two nights’ accommodation in a beautifully appointed bedroom or suite overlooking the Palace, Full English breakfast, a Champagne Afternoon Tea, and two tickets to either The Queen’s Gallery or The State Rooms at Buckingham Palace.  Prices for the ‘Live Like Royalty’ package start at £335 per night (excluding VAT) based on two people sharing a King room.  Prices for suites such as those names above will vary and be based on the best available rate.

The Milestone Hotel is famous for its sumptuous interiors and has just unveiled its recently-refurbished master suite – The Tudor Suite. Comprising one bedroom and one sitting room, the regal Tudor Suite offers the most luxurious of stays with features such as a gold four poster bed, rich custom made ivory silk curtains and furniture and art sourced from Christies and the finest auction houses around the world.
