With all eyes on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle this Saturday, the hotly anticipated wedding of the year is just hours away. Since the start of their fairytale courtship in October 2016, audiences and fans of the Royal Family have been watching the couple’s romance unfold, creating excitement for everyone around the world.

While all eyes will be on the charming duo this weekend as they exchange vows at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, it’s no secret that the biggest event of the year is attracting tourists from all over the world to witness the historic event. Though many will be in attendance, plenty won’t be, but there are a slew of ways to get into the royal spirit and grace the places that have been famously associated with the Royals.

From the restaurant where they had their first blind date to Kensington Gardens, while the royal couple will reside after tying the knot, here are five places to visit that will have you feeling like a royal.

Soho House

World renowned, the original Soho House was founded in London, 1995 and has grown into one of the biggest private members’ clubs, restaurants and hotels across Europe and North America. While the royal family has frequented its London location frequently, Prince Harry and Markle were first photographed together leaving the Soho House on Dean Street in February 2017.

Dean Street Townhouse

If you’re looking to sit in the lap of luxury when in London, this lavish hotel and restaurant has cemented its place in royal history. According to Architectural Digest, Prince Harry and Markle had their first official date (a blind one!) at this location, while dining at a chic eatery within the Soho House family.

Battersea Park

Located on the South Bank of the Thames, this 200-acre park is the spot where Prince Harry and Markle reportedly purchased a Christmas tree together in 2016. Perfect for leisurely walks or romantic dates, the park hosts a slew of festivals and events, and is the best way to escape the hustle and bustle of London.

St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle

For those who are ready to watch the real-life fairytale unfold, the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Markle will start noon local time on May 19 at St. George’s Chapel, a church within the grounds of Windsor Castle. Tourists can explore the grounds and nearly all of the castle, including its beautiful chapel. The Queen herself spends many of her weekends at the castle, that has been occupied for 900 continuous years and also happens to be a 50-minute drive from central London.

Kensington Gardens

When looking ahead to the future, this English oasis located on the western edge of London’s Hyde Park is one everyone will love visiting. After Prince Harry and Markle tie the knot in Windsor, the two will move to Kensington Gardens, the royal residence of Kensington Palace, along Nottingham Cottage, which becomes their new home after the wedding. While their cottage home will not be open to visitors, the Palace and Gardens sell admission for tours and exhibits.
