French Hotel Turns Away Royal Family 0

French Hotel Turns Away Royal Family

By Jordi Lippe-McGraw March 11, 2016 VIP status couldn t help Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry score a room at this five-star hotel. Being a member of the royal family 1 comes with some pretty good perks including the ability to stay at some of the nicest places in the world. But a notable title couldn t help Prince William, Kate Middleton, or Prince Harry score a hotel room at Le H tel Marotte 2 in Amiens, France, this June.

The manager of the property, Olivier Walti, told local paper Courrier Picard 3 that the French Foreign Ministry contacted them in January about booking suites for the famous threesome s trip to the area this summer, but couldn t accommodate them despite the six-month notice. The Foreign Ministry has contacted us in January to see if we were able to accommodate the royal family on the occasion of the Somme commemorations, said Walti. We had to decline the offer.

It is impossible. We are already booked solid. We would not tell people who have booked with us for months and who have already paid for their stay, sorry, but the royal family is coming, we will have to cancel.

It s just unthinkable ethically. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, and other dignitaries are scheduled to be in Somme from June 30 and July 1 to commemorate those who died in the 1916 battle. This is an important commemoration and they are honored to be taking part on behalf of The Queen and the Government, a spokesman from Kensington Palace 4 said.

The five-star property would have been ideal for the royal trio s stay, as it s the only luxury property situated close to the battlefields, features contemporary furnishings, a security gate, and houses a lounge, coffee shop and tea room all for about $300 a night.

Could an Airbnb 5 be in the royals future?

PHOTOS: Royal family's first vacation as family of 4 in French Alps …

Prince William was pelted with snowballs by his wife, Kate Middleton, on their first holiday as a family of four earlier this week. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with children Prince George, 2, and Princess Charlotte, 10 months, were seen frolicking in the French Alps in photos by Press Association photographer John Stillwell. Stillwell was the sole photographer invited to join the royals on their short holiday, in a secret location in the Alps.

The royal couple is shown laughing and throwing fistfuls of snow at each other with William bearing the brunt of a snowball to the face. He quickly regains his composure, happily wrestling with the Duchess and knocking another snowball out of her hand. The vacation also marked another first: It was the first time Prince George and Princess Charlotte had ever played in the snow, according to a tweet from Kensington Palace.

The Duke and Duchess are both avid skiers, and news of their budding relationship first splashed across British tabloids back in 2004, after they were pictured hitting the slopes at the Swiss resort of Klosters.

At the time, the Sun newspaper published the images with the headline Will gets a girl a story Buckingham Palace was reportedly very unhappy with.

Fast forward to 2016, and the couple are again pictured messing about in the snow though this time, it s on their own terms.
