Edinburgh Hotel Gets into the Royal Spirit with Celebration Event

A CITY centre hotel is getting into the spirt of all things Harry and Meghan by throwing a special Royal wedding party – with a special treat for any namesakes of the famous couple.

As well as broadcasting the ceremony on a giant screen, the Leonardo Royal Edinburgh Haymarket is encouraging guests to dress up in crowns and take selfies on their throne-like chairs in their lobby.

The hotel, formerly a Premier Inn until summer last year, has also created its own Royal wedding-inspired cocktail, Leo90 Royal.

And lucky visitors who share the same names as Meghan or Harry can even treat themselves to a free cocktail in the stylish bar area simply by showing their ID.

Gillian Duthie, Cluster General Manager at the Leonardo Royal Edinburgh Haymarket, said: “The Royal wedding has caught the imagination of people across the country and it’s no different here at the Leonardo Royal Edinburgh Haymarket.

“It’s sure to be a brilliant atmosphere around the bar area as people settle into watch the wedding and what better way to watch it than on our massive projector screen. We just have to figure out how to work it and the projector we should know to use it properly.

“We’re hoping that we have our own Meghans and Harrys that pop in to celebrate and enjoy the atmosphere with a free cocktail.”

And the party won’t stop once the ceremony is over either, as the hotel is running its very own Royal Afterparty from 7pm until midnight with a resident DJ in the Leo90 Bar.

The four-star hotel is in a prime location in the city, just a five-minute walk from the train station for those looking to travel through to enjoy the celebrations.

Prince Harry and Meghan will marry at Windsor Castle this Saturday, with wellwishers encouraged to get along to the hotel in plenty time to enjoy the ceremony.

The unique, new cocktails are available for just £8.99 while there will be a host of prizes available on the day for the guest who take the best selfies in their crowns.
