The Fairmont Hotels & Resorts around the world are planning to celebrate the May 19th wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with guests at its luxurious hotels around the world. Hotels in Toronto and New York feel a particular connection to Ms. Markle. On her drama SUITS, Markle’s character dreamed of a wedding at The Plaza, a Fairmont Managed Hotel in New York and the scene was actually filmed at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto. Both properties will offer options for watching the Royal Wedding live on the big day. Prince Harry also has another Canadian Fairmont hotel connection: The Fairmont Château Laurier, in Ottawa has played host to many royal figures including his mother, the late Princess Diana. www.fairrmont.com
