Royal Visit to Increase April British Bookings to Rome

A scheduled visit to Vatican City by the British Royals could see top establishments like the WorldHotel Ripa Roma come into demand among British citizens next April, as they try to catch a glimpse of this memorable meeting.

Queen Elizabeth and husband Prince Phillip are scheduled to have lunch at the Vatican during the one-day visit on April 3. The couple will be attending what was described by Buckingham Palace as a ‘relaxed’ meeting with Pope Francis at his residence. The informal nature of this visitation will be stressed by the fact that Queen Elizabeth will not be expected to be wearing black or a veil, but rather her usual airy pastels.

Also included in the programme for this flash visit to Italy is a private lunch with Italian president Giorgio Napolitano, who will host the monarchs at the Presidential Palace in the city.

This important visit had originally been scheduled to happen in March of last year; however, the meeting had to be postponed after Queen Elizabeth fell ill, and will now be taking place on the date mentioned above. Top city establishments like the Worldhotel Ripa Roma are already gearing up for what looks certain to be a record breaking booking season.

The meeting with the Pope is one of two international events in the royal couple's schedule for this spring. Aside from the visit to Rome, the Queen and Prince Phillip will be heading to Paris in June to take part in the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the invasion of Normandy by Allied forces during World War II. The couple’s presence at this event acquires particular symbolism due to the fact that both monarchs served in the British military during that particular war. During their three-day visit, the Royal couple will be hosted by French president Francois Hollande and attend all the events and ceremonies on the anniversary schedule.

Other Royal family visits scheduled for the upcoming months include the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official visit to Australia, which is also to take place in April.
