The discreet Goring Hotel, a few blocks from Buckingham Palace in London will not be so discreet after the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton in April, as the Middleton family, including the royal fiancée, will spend the night before the wedding in that family property.
The five-room suite has been newly redecorated, apparently as part of a general refurbishment of the hotel following its centenary last year. The Goring hotel is still in the ownership of the family that opened it in 1910: the current chief executive Jeremy Goring, a surfer and former rock drummer, is the great-grandson of the founder. Furnished in the style of a London club or a wood-panelled English country house, it is usually a haunt of diplomats, politicians and American bishops. It has taken advantage of its royal connection to release promotional film footage to broadcasters.
