A hotel for the Middletons?
Staying at the five-star, family-run hotel -- the Mail reports that double rooms go for £345 a night -- would allow those close to the couple to be near Buckingham Palace, where the queen is hosting a post-wedding brunch and Prince Charles plans to host a dinner on April 29.
Kay, who mentions talk among "excited staff," writes that "Kate is thinking of basing herself at the same hotel for the night before the ceremony."
Kate is breaking with royal tradition by not riding in a horse-drawn carriage to Westminster Abbey, so it wouldn't be all that surprising if she again broke with tradition and chose not to spend her last night as a single woman in a royal palace but with her family. William's mother spent the night before her wedding at the London home of the queen mother (now the home of Prince Charles) and arrived at St. Paul's Cathedral in a horse-drawn glass coach. We're not sure if it's common sense or royal connections that led Kay to write that Kate is "[d]etermined to avoid comparisons with Princess Diana." But it's clear that Prince William and Kate seem determined to put their own stamp on things.
