Your Guide to the Most Meghan Markle-Approved London Vacation

You’ve seen a Shakespeare play at The Globe, taken a ride on the Eye and shopped ’til you dropped at Harrods. So next time you hit up your favorite international city, you’d like more of an insider’s look. Who better to show you around than Meghan Markle, England’s newest American expat and Prince Harry's bride-to-be? Here are some of her favorite London hangouts that are—literally—fit for royalty.

3 Incredible Travel Destinations That Are Harry and Meghan Approved

Nails & Brows Mayfair
The Mayfair nail and brow bar is where the latest member of the royal family goes to maintain her enviable polished look. She is reportedly a regular of Sherrille Riley, the salon founder, who gives Megz the Full Audrey Treatment—waxing, tweezing and threading her eyebrows into a clean and elegant shape inspired by Audrey Hepburn.

31 Berkeley St., Mayfair, London;

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Clinic
While Meghan's glowing skin may be partly due to, well, falling in love with a prince, it’s also thanks to regular treatments at the Chelsea salon of London's most sought after facialist, Sarah Chapman. Can't get an appointment? No problem. Pop in to buy products from her popular skin-care line and you're practically a princess already.

Dining Out

Soho House Group
It's no secret that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spent their first date at Dean Street Townhouse, and it's rumored that Meghan recently had an intimate bachelorette party at Soho Farm House (the country hotel belonging to the same members-only group). Perhaps it's the exclusivity or the cool credentials that they like, but it's clear that membership to Soho House (which provides access to Electric House, Little House, Soho House and Shoreditch House) is a good place for royal fanatics (read: stalkers) to spot the loved-up duo.

Bocca di Lupo
Markle's other go-to restaurant is chef Jacob Kennedy's cozy Italian spot in Soho. The menu pulls traditional favorites from different regions across Italy, including a popular radish and pecorino salad with a truffle dressing, Puglian burrata and gnocchi with Calabrese sausage. It also owns Gelupo, a gelato bar across the road. Sounds like the perfect date night to us…

Heidi Klein
The swim and beachwear boutique has two London stores (Notting Hill and Chelsea) selling its own in-house label as well as a range of kaftans, bikinis, beach bags, sandals and anything else you might need for a quick escape to the sun. Perhaps the grim London weather is already getting to her as Miss Markle was recently seen leaving the Chelsea outlet, shopping bags in hand.

Multiple locations

The royal bride-to-be was spotted wearing a cream, relaxed-fit, funnel-neck jumper from AllSaints on a recent official visit with Prince Harry. The high-end, High Street-favorite is known for its edgy style and muted color palette. (Affordable leather jackets are an especially good buy here.) They have stores all over London but we are pretty sure you'll find Meghan browsing her nearest branch in Chelsea.

For Date Night

Battersea Park
The royal couple was spotted buying their first Christmas tree from this vast southwest London public space, but there are plenty of other things for visitors to do in the 200-acre green space. There's an art gallery, adorable petting zoo, herb garden, bike path, running tracks, charming boating lake. Oh, and there's a dog and cat shelter in case Meghan and Harry want to adopt a fluffy addition to their family. We hear she was good with the Corgis, after all.

Theater District
It comes as no surprise that the American actress and self-proclaimed theater nerd was keen to check out London's buzzing theater scene as soon as she arrived in town. Meghan took her fiancé to see Hamilton at the Victoria Palace Theatre and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime at The Gielgud Theatre (now showing The Ferrymen). Now here’s hoping we can get tickets to the hottest act in town—the royal wedding.
