anyway, they clearly liked it as they came back with the girls after. i assume they must favour this sort of secluded destinations to get some privacy.
Thank you for the info about their honeymoon! I was very young when F&L got married, so I didn't know about the disclosure of hotetls etc, and knowing that they are very good at keeping their privacy I was even more surprised!

Well, I have to ell you a story of more than 50 years ago.
Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg and her husband were invited to a Hunt in Belgium.
On their way back to Luxembourg the weather was that bad that they decided to stop and going for the nght in a Hotel in the Ardennes.
They had a small car and wore dirty shoes. They were refused for the night.
They went to another hotel just at the other side of the Road and asked to bring to the former Hotel their Card : Leurs Altesses Royales La grande Duchesse et le Prince de luxemborg.!

Mohamed VI and his family have been at the Saratoga Hotel during their trip to havana, cuba, which they have booked fully for their use and the use of their committee (occupying three floors between family members and the entourage, so a large delegation, i assume)

the Saratoga is one of the city's most modern hotels and Is located on the edge of the historic center. Decorated in a New York style, the lobby of the Capitol building and the Gran Teatro de La Habana, home of the National Ballet of Cuba, and popularly known by its old name, García Lorca Theater

No combing the hair, no shower etc - just to get a feed before starting the day after a long trip to get there a few hours before.

She shared the elevator ride down with an immaculately dressed lady - outfit, hair, make-up, jewelry, the works - also on her way to eat.

Princess Michael of Kent and her entourage!

During the Second World War, King Peter II of Yugoslavia was exiled from Yugoslavia and spent most of the war living in the Claridge Hotel in London, England.

When Prince Louis II of Monaco dined at the Hotel de Paris, he requested the orchestra play The March of the Foreign Legion.
