Harry and Meghan hotspots

Windsor Castle

Strike a wedding-day pose at the entrance to St George’s Chapel. This pretty 14th-century chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle was the venue for Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May 2018. Other Windsor castle highlights include Queen Mary’s Dolls House and the regal State Apartments. You can visit Windsor Castle on a day trip from London, or combine your visit with a tour of Buckingham Palace

Household Calvary Museum

Visit the Household Cavalry Museum to learn all about Prince Harry's former regiment: the Household Cavalry's Blues and Royals. Discover the history of the military unit, browse interactive displays and try on a regimental frock coat, similar to one worn by The Duke of Sussex on his wedding day.  

Nails and Brows

Being in the spotlight requires some pampering every now and then, which is why Meghan visits luxury boutique Nails and Brows in Mayfair. Book a slot for one of its manicures, waxings or beauty treatments that are sure to make you feel like a princess or prince. This exclusive salon is run by Sherrille Riley, who has worked with some of the world’s leading fashion houses and magazines.

Visit Violet bakery in Hackney, which made Harry and Meghan’s lemon and elderflower wedding cake. Choose from the sweet and savoury eat-in options or take a cake away for later – you may not want a replica of the wedding cake, however, as it’s rumoured to have cost around £50,000!

Bocca di Lupo

Eat like Meghan at Bocca di Lupo, a popular Italian restaurant in Soho. The Duchess of Sussex loves Italy and visited the Amalfi coast in 2017, so it’s no surprise she was spotted at this restaurant, which serves up some of the most authentic regional Italian fare in London. 

Whole Foods Kensington

Meghan has been seen in Whole Foods Kensington, which is a treasure trove of health-conscious foods – browse the shelves for organic produce or grab some lunch on the go. This food shop is also close to many luxury boutiques in Kensington, as well as famous department stores Harrods and Harvey Nichols.

Battersea Park

The loved-up couple were spotted buying a Christmas tree in Battersea Park in 2016. Take time to explore this tranquil park, which includes a children’s zoo, bandstand, boating lake and a Peace Pagoda on the banks of the river Thames.

Pop Brixton

Head to lively south London neighbourhood, Brixton, to emulate the royal couple. Dining hotspot Pop Brixton houses the Reprezent FM youth radio station, where Harry and Meghan visited to find out more about its social enterprise work, but it’s also a great place for a bite to eat with a range of food and drink venues.

The Brown Cow

Enjoy a pint at one of Harry’s favourite London pubs, The Brown Cow in Fulham. Previously owned by his friend, Mark Dyer, this low-key venue is where Harry toasted Prince George's birth and the first place he went for a drink when he returned from Afghanistan.

Mahiki

Share one of the famous treasure chest cocktails and dance into the early hours at Mahiki. This Mayfair cocktail bar and club was a regular haunt of Harry and his friends during his younger days, which included a fair amount of late-night partying – if only the walls could talk!  

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

The former London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic site was the venue of the first Invictus Games, which were founded by Harry. Walk around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park’s green spaces, go for a swim in the Aquatics Centre or head up the ArcelorMittal Orbit, which has magnificent views of east London and an exhilarating slide for adrenaline-junkies.

King's Road

Chelsea’s famous King’s Road has seen countless celebrities walk its boutique-lined streets in search of the latest fashion trends over the decades, and Meghan is no exception. The actor was seen leaving high-end beachwear shop Heidi Klein in 2017. 

London shops

Have you wondered where Meghan picks up her stylish clothes? She’s been spotted wearing threads from high-street brands such as M&S and All Saints, as well as British designers Victoria Beckham and Burberry. Seek out luxury brands in one of London’s top shopping destinations such as Oxford Street, Bond Street, Westfield London and Covent Garden.

Dean Street Townhouse

Harry and Meghan had their first date at this plush restaurant in Soho. Enjoy brunch, afternoon tea or select modern British dishes from the all-day menu in elegant but relaxed surrounds. With a buzzy atmosphere and classy cocktails, Dean Street Townhouse is the perfect place to settle any first-date nerves.

National Army Museum

Learn more about the British Army at the National Army Museum. Harry served in Afghanistan in the Blues and Royals cavalry regiment of the British Army in 2007 and 2008, and returned to the war zone in 2012 and 2013 with the Army Air Corps.
