Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are following the wedding tradition of the groom not seeing the bride before the wedding! And to make sure their paths don’t cross, the couple will stay in separate hotels the night before their royal wedding.
Harry will stay at the Dorchester Collection’s Coworth Park in Windsor. He’ll be joined by his best man and big brother, Prince William.
Meghan and her mother, Doria Ragland, will stay at Cliveden House Hotel, on the National Trust’s Cliveden Estate in Windsor. The two hotels are about a 30-minute drive (15 miles) from each other.
Meghan and her mother will arrive at Cliveden House on Friday evening. And they’ll depart by car from the hotel together on Saturday morning as they make the 25-minute drive to St. George’s Chapel. They will be greeted by Meghan’s dad, Thomas Markle, who will walk his daughter down the aisle to wed Prince Harry.
Harry’s hotel, Coworth Park, is one of England’s most iconic 5-star country house hotels. The luxury retreat is set on 240 acres of picturesque Berkshire parkland. The estate features an eco-luxury spa with an indoor pool and three restaurants. The rooms have stunning views of the lime grove, meadows and polo fields.
