Luxury hotels offer Princess Diana Christmas suite and Meghan Markle package

Two luxury hotels in America are offering holiday packages inspired by the Royals.

Inspired by the new season of The Crown on Netflix, The Drake Hotel in Chicago is offering a one-night package in the same place Princess Diana famously stayed in 1996.

The overnight package will include tea and dinner at The Drake – one of the most expensive hotels in the world.

The iconic hotel features some of Diana’s favourite things and requests for her stay.

To commemorate her appearance on season four of The Crown, the hotel has launched a special ‘Crowning a Lady’ package which features a variety of amenities that Princess Diana herself enjoyed.

Lucky guests will also enjoy a special white-glove service to view the original and authentic signature from Princess Diana in the official Drake autograph book. 

And that’s not the only royal getaway you could book.

Over in New York, The Mark Hotel in Manhattan is offering a Meghan Markle-inspired package.

You can stay in the same place Meghan Markle had her baby shower, courtesy of Serena Williams, which also has plenty of festivities for you to enjoy.


The Penthouse Holiday Spectacular experience at The Mark includes a feast by a Michelin-starred chef, a private Nutcracker performance, and a stay in the penthouse of course.

Meghan enjoyed her baby shower at The Mark in February 2019 when Serena and Amal Clooney threw her the star-studded party.

And of course, the penthouse package comes with a hefty price tag.

You can book the Penthouse Holiday Spectacular experience for $175,000 (£132, 264) a night.

But with it, you can enjoy the hotel’s many amenities including s a private skating rink on the 2,500 square foot terrace, a four-course holiday feast by Jean-Georges, family photographs shot by fashion photographer Alexei Hay.

Other perks include a private hot chocolate stand by Laduree, an after-hours shopping spree at Bergdorf Goodman, a private viewing of an unreleased blockbuster movie, and music by a Julliard-trained pianist.

This offer also includes round trip airport transfers (by car or helicopter) and private butler, nanny, fitness, and spa services.

Over at The Drake, Crowning a Lady rates start at $32,000 (£24, 196).

With it, you’ll get a two-night Stay in Princess Diana Suite with upgrades to afternoon tea (with up to six guests) where you can drink Rose Pouchong, Princess Di’s fave.
