On Friday, April 29, 2011, National Hotel Miami Beach will host a royal affair in honor of the much-anticipated marriage of England’s Prince William to fiancé Kate Middleton. Held at The Restaurant and Blues Bar from 6:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., the broadcast viewing party will offer guests the opportunity to watch the festivities on a large projector screen while enjoying a traditional “Full English Breakfast” consisting of fried eggs, English-style sausage, rashers of crispy fried bacon, browned mushrooms, black pudding, a browned half tomato and fried bread.

For those who miss the live viewing of the celebrated couple’s “I do’s,” Blues Bar, which will be decked out with floral designs provided by Blooming Design & Events, will continue to loop the footage throughout the day accompanied by Kir Royal cocktails for $6 each. Guests are invited to enjoy the breakfast for $24 (gratuity and cocktails not included), while those who don their best Kate Middleton hat will receive a complimentary Kir Royal. Even better, those who “Get on the List” on the hotel’s Facebook page by noon on Thursday, April 28, will automatically be entered into a drawing for a chance to win the “The Royal Treatment” – a special package in honor of the nuptials consisting of a two-night stay in a luxury suite, complete with breakfast, one dinner and valet parking – to be announced at the viewing party. Valet parking will also be offered at a discounted rate of $10.

In what will be the largest royal wedding since Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana – and not to mention the most expensive celebrity wedding ever, likely costing British taxpayers more than $20 million – the marriage of Wills and Kate will commence with the arrival of the bride at Westminster Abbey, followed by an 11:00 a.m. (GMT) ceremony during which time Archbishop Canterbury Rowan Williams will marry the couple, whose eight-year courtship has drawn international attention. Witnesses and those who catch the live viewing on BBC and BBC America will then look on as the newly weds glide in a horse-drawn carriage through Britain’s Parliament Square, Whitehall, Horse Guards Parade, the Mall and then to Buckingham Palace, where husband and wife are expected to make an appearance on the same balcony William’s parents kissed after their wedding in 1981.
