The Daily Mail reports that Kate Middleton and Prince William's family and friends will be staying at London's Goring Hotel near Buckingham Palace for four days for the royal wedding. And rumour has it that Kate will be spending her final night as an unmarried woman there as well.
The couple reportedly chose the haunt - a favourite of the Queen's and Baroness Thatcher's - because it is close to the Palace where their reception will be held. If Kate spends the night before the wedding in the hotel it will be yet another sign (along with doing her own makeup for the engagement photos and going by car to Westminster Abbey) that the royal-to-be is eschewing overblown grandeur in favour of something simpler.
Although double rooms do cost £345 a night, so rest assured she'll still be in opulent surroundings.
Well, if you're going to be royalty for the rest of your life, you might as well enjoy being a civilian for one more night!
