How do the Royal family travel? Take a glimpse at jet-setting Royal life

Get the highlights without all the rules.

By Holly Royce
There are a lot of rules about travelling when you're a royal - heck; there are a lot of rules about everything.
There's an official rule that two heirs to the royal throne should never be on the same plane together. The macabre reason being the protection of the Royal bloodline, should anything happen to the plane.
Then there's the rule that the entirety of the British Royal Family must always pack a black outfit only to be worn in the sad case that a family member dies while they're travelling.
That's just the tip of the iceberg, but the good news is you can travel like a Royal without all the pomp and ceremony.
Take a look at some of their favourite hotspots below.

Visit St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, where Prince Harry and Ms Markle will wed

Take a trip and visit Buckingham Palace, home to the Queen of England; Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate were married in 2011 and even St. Georges Chapel, where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will wed during spring time in London next year.
If it seems like a lot to take in, try a handy Trafalgar eight-day-tour to take some of the stress away.

Try a Royal on Tour

Take some of the stress of planning a trip away with a royal tour like Luxury Gold's British Royale itinerary.
Guests will meet iconic personalities to bring stories to life - such as meeting the late Queen Mother's favourite bagpiper in Edinburgh, head to the Windsor Castle to meet a Military Knight and learn all about their duties.
Travellers will even have the chance to join the Duchess of Northumberland for a private tour of her beautifully restored gardens at her home, Alnwick Castle.

Head to Botswana where Meghan and Harry fell in love

The remote and wild game viewing experience of Botswana's lush grasslands offsets the intricate detail of the hidden world of the Delta's waterways; would have surely been a romantic setting for their first holiday together
