Only the very best of British appear on the prestigious Royal Warrant list, which represents top individuals and companies who have supplied the Royal households with goods or services for at least five years. Established in 1840, Royal Warrants demonstrate impeccable service and high standards, and are considered a highly covetable badge of honour for retailers.

Despite central London having a wide selection of great shops, only those with the royal seal of approval can boast a Royal Warrant. If you want to shop like the Queen, the Rubens at the Palace Hotel puts you in close proximity to some of the capital’s most prestigious shopping destinations.
