The Duchess of Cambridge loves nothing more than kicking back at The Goring in London, and Claridge's has often played host to the Queen. As for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, when they return to the UK we can see the pair travelling to rural Oxfordshire, where they previously owned a £2.5million farmhouse. Here's where we imagine the royals will be travelling to in the UK...

The Goring, London

The only hotel to have been awarded a Royal Warrant for hospitality services, The Goring borders on the iconic walls of Buckingham Palace and nearby Knightsbridge. Boasting 69 sumptuous suites filled with lavish decor, it famously hosted the Duchess of Cambridge in its Royal Suite the night before her wedding in April 2011.

The epitome of art deco glamour, Claridge's has fast become an English institution thanks to its royal ties and rich heritage. The hotel even boasts a Royal Suite inspired by the Coronation of Her Majesty The Queen, which features monochrome stone flooring, damask silk wall coverings, hand-painted chinoiserie wallpaper, and 'Buckingham blue' flourishes.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently based in Montecito, California, but they previously owned a country bolthole in the Cotswolds. According to The Sun, the royal couple's property was just a stone's throw from private members' club Soho Farmhouse - where Meghan hosted a spa-themed bridal shower in 2018. She also reportedly stayed here in 2016 with Made In Chelsea's Millie Mackintosh.

Prince Harry and best man Prince William headed to Coworth Park ahead of his upcoming nuptials to Meghan Markle. Stretching across 240 acres of picturesque parkland, we reckon the groom was swayed by the hotel's impressive equestrian centre and polo fields.

An opulent retreat nestled alongside the Clwydian Range in Wales, Ruthin Castle is a particular favourite of Prince Charles, who stayed here the night before his investiture as Prince of Wales at Caernarfon Castle in 1969. A botanical beauty equipped with its own Italian gardens and surrounded by rustic woodlands, Ruthin Castle is truly a royal gem.
