女王的 60 周年“钻石庆”庆典将于 6 月 2-5 日举行，定会成为伦敦、英联邦乃至全世界的一个历史性时刻。The Savoy 地理位置绝佳，便于客人参与诸如女王马车游行和游船护航等活动，活动将于 6 月 3 日（周日）举行，届时将有多达 1,000 只游船沿泰晤士河驶过酒店。The Diamond Jubilee package starts from £1,230 and includes 2-night’s accommodation, breakfast and a special 4-course Jubilee dinner.
Throughout the 20th century, The Savoy has been a popular destination for members of the Royal Family, who frequently attended private dinners or balls without attracting unwelcome attention from the press.The young Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret loved to visit the hotel informally in the evenings for dinner and dancing.The Queen Mother also visited the hotel frequently, and the private side entrance to the building which she used is still known as the “Queen Mother’s Entrance”.Before becoming Queen, Princess Elizabeth was first seen with new husband Lt. Philip Mountbatten in public at a reception at The Savoy in 1948.
But Fairmont’s ties to the Queen’s family go back to before Elizabeth was even born.In the l920s the young Prince of Wales, (Queen Elizabeth’s uncle, who would later become King Edward,), traveled across Canada and attended many balls in his honor at the luxury hotel company’s Canadian hotels.In Victoria, almost 50 years later, the obituaries of elderly ladies would appear under headlines such as, 'Mrs. Thornley-Hall Dies.Prince of Wales Singled Her Out.' In 1939, after King Edward’s abdication, King George VI & Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mum, also toured Canada, stopping by The Fairmont Palliser, The Fairmont Banff Springs, The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and more.
The Fairmont Empress in Victoria, British Columbia has hosted Queen Elizabeth nearly every decade of her reign and has Royal China exclusively used for Royal Visits.The luxurious Outlook Cabin at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge hosted Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in 2005, and her parents King George VI & Queen Elizabeth in 1939.The Royal Suite at The Fairmont Royal York plays host to Queen Elizabeth and her family whenever they visit Toronto and Montreal’s Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth boasts of hosting three generations of the royal family.Vancouver’s Fairmont Waterfront has hosted princes William and Harry while their parents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana, visited Ottawa’s Fairmont Chateau Laurier while on a Royal Tour in 1983.Kate Middleton, now styled the Duchess of Cambridge, first caught Prince William’s eye during a 2001 fashion show at Scotland’s Fairmont St Andrews.Outside The Commonwealth, The Fairmont San Francisco’s Penthouse Suite has hosted notable royals such as Prince Charles, while The Plaza in New York was once frequented by the former King Edward and Wallis Simpson - The Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
In Bermuda, The Fairmont Hamilton Princess has longstanding royal connections, having hosted the future King Edward as an honored guest for a ball in the 1920s, and decades later, hosting his nephew Prince Charles for a formal event of his own.The hotel opened its doors on January 1, 1885 after Bermuda had gained international recognition two years earlier when Princess Louise, the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria, visited for a winter retreat.When the hotel opened, it was named ''The Princess'' in honor of her royal visit.Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise’s namesake lake, and as a result the hotel, was also named in honor of Princess Louise, who was Vice Regal Consort of Canada when her husband was named Governor General in 1878.
