Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are apparently planning their honeymoon in Canada.
That’s according to sources who told TMZ the newlyweds are due to stay in the luxurious Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Alberta, Canada.
The hotel is situated right in the middle of Jasper National Park.
Here’s another look:
While the date of their honeymoon is unknown, the couple is said to be staying at the 6,000-square-foot Outlook Cabin, which has become so popular among the royals it has been nicknamed “The Royal Retreat.” Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip stayed there in June 2005, while King George VI and Queen Elizabeth stayed there in 1939.
Here’s a look inside:
According to the hotel’s website, “every inch” of the lodge exudes “elegance and grandeur.”
It boasts six bedrooms (each with an ensuite bathroom), a dining room, a great room, a conservatory, and an enclosed veranda, as well as a “majestic stone fireplace.” It can cost up to £5,000 ($US6,650) a night.
Here’s a look at one of the bedrooms:
The hotel is also a favourite among celebrities – it was the location of the 1954 Marilyn Monroe film “River of No Return” and has hosted the likes of Anthony Hopkins, John Travolta, and Bill Gates.
Here’s Bing Crosby visiting:
TMZ reported that the resort had ordered “gear and goodies” it doesn’t provide for regular guests and that British and Canadian security would be involved when the couple arrives.
An official statement from the hotel, however, suggests nothing has been booked.
“Though Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has a longstanding history of serving as a royal retreat, we can confirm that the couple is not currently booked for a stay,” the hotel said. “We are declining further comment at this time, as our top priority is always the safety and privacy of all of our guests. We appreciate your understanding.”
Whether or not Harry and Meghan end up staying at the Fairmont, it certainly looks like the perfect spot for celebrating.
