The world will be watching April 29, 2011 as Prince William takes Kate Middleton as his bride in the “Royal Wedding of [this] Century”. From souvenir stickers, tea cups, and postcards to virtual guest books, the excitement that was felt around the globe as Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer in 1981 has been rekindled.
Being a dutiful member of the British Commonwealth, most Canadians are excited to witness these regal nuptials and locally, the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver has taken charge of celebrating in style – even if festivities do kick off at 3:00am Pacific Time.
On the morning of April 29th, the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver will be airing full wedding coverage and Breakfast Television will be broadcasting live from the “Royal Breakfast” event from 5:30am until 9:00am.
900 West Lounge will be serving up a three-tiered breakfast platters (complete with the hotelâ€™s famous scones) for $29 per person, including coffee or tea. Please note that breakfast reservations are required and can be made by calling (604) 662-1900. The Royal Breakfast is a part of Fairmont Hotels’ “Royal Month” campaign throughout April.
The hotel has kindly offered up a special contest package so that one of my readers can enjoy this occasion in style. The “Royal Breakfast Sleepover” contest package includes an overnight stay at the legendary Fairmont Hotel Vancouver (Thursday, April 28, 2011) and the Royal Breakfast in the morning of the 29th. The winner and their guest can make their way down to 900 West Lounge to see the live television coverage (starting at 3:00am, if they’re so inclined) and watch BT do their broadcast at 5:30am.
Here’s how you can enter to win:
I will draw one winner at 11:00am next Tuesday, April 26, 2011. The prize is valid April 28th – April 29th and for the Royal Breakfast. It cannot be redeemed for a stay on different dates at the hotel.
