The Royal Wedding is fast approaching, and Kensington Palace has revealed where Meghan Markle will be spending her last night as a commoner: Cliveden House Hotel. The estate announced that it will be closed to other guests leading up to the royal nuptials on Saturday.

Accompanied by her mother, the duchess-to-be will stay at the five-star luxury hotel in Berkshire Taplo, about nine miles north of Windsor Castle.  Built in 1666, the estate was once the home of Prince Frederick of Wales, and it was later visited by Queen Victoria. 

Royal watchers are predicting that Meghan will stay in the hotel’s Lady Astor Suite — demurely dubbed on the hotel’s website as “one of the very grandest suites in England” — the suite is large enough to fit “up to 60 people for a wedding ceremony.” The 800-square-foot suite also features antique furniture, original art, a large private terrace and sweeping views of the Thames River.

A stay in the Lady Astor Suite will set you back £1,535 per night (or just over $2,000).

The hotel has a total of 38 rooms, including 15 spacious suites, a summerhouse by the Thames, a boathouse and boats, heated pool, a spa and a range of sporting and leisure facilities. 

TPG reached out to Cliveden House, but the hotel did not comment on the royal pre-wedding stay.

If you’d like the royal treatment at Cliveden House, there is no Prince Charming required.  Amex Fine Hotel & Resorts program can help you out.
