Celebrate the upcoming regal nuptials with The Kensington’s series of Royal Inspired Masterclasses
Taking place to celebrate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming wedding on 19th May, The Kensington has announced a series of Royal Inspired Masterclasses in the lead up to the big day.
Each of the three masterclasses have been inspired by Meghan, designed to prepare ‘for life in the Palace’ – featuring fun, interactive evening activities for hotel guests and the public alike.
Plus, no masterclass could be complete without accompanying bubbly and delicious canapes, created by the hotel’s renowned restaurant, Town House.

2 ‘Write Like A Royal’ – Calligraphy masterclass with Suzie Dicker, Founder of A L’Aise
Calligraphy is a skill Meghan perfected long before she met Harry and she used it to pay her way through university.
The ‘Write Like a Royal’ masterclass with expert calligrapher and founder of bespoke stationary brand A L’Aise, Suzie Dicker, will teach participants how to pen perfectly.
Suzie aims to bring each pupil’s individual style and personality into the writing and guests will go home with their own calligraphy guide book, Royal Wedding inspiration sheet, calligraphy pen and pot of ink so they can continue to practice at home.
