25 Top Destinations The Royals Love Traveling To

We love to watch the British Royal Family and nothing they do can slip by us; wherever they go and whatever they do, we want all the scoop. And what more would we want to know than where the British monarchy fly their planes to vacation "privately?"

When it comes to the Royal Family, it is a "never-miss a thing" relationship that we desire to have with them. If any family in the world has royal taste, it is the Royal Family themselves, and we could attempt to live vicariously through them. The Brits do not shy away from visiting and checking out the most lavish and expensive hotels and resorts around the world. The British Royal Family actually have a great influence on people. Remember Prince William and Duchess Kate's trip to India? People were extensively following their trip, which educated many people on the culture and enticed them to want to visit India. Their presence could actually help increase tourism in a particular city because of the power, fame, and status they hold. If you are wondering where the Royals love to kick back and relax and spend their millions, read on and then book your next trip.

The royals frequent the same destinations year after year when they need to get away from their sumptuous Buckingham Palace and the extravagant lifestyle that comes with it. Sometimes, they do not escape too far from home for a holiday, and visit the rest of England, like Sandringham, Norfolk, England. The Royal Family are the only people allowed to escape to more luxury, like the Sandringham home — before Duchess Meghan was married to Prince Harry, she was not allowed to step foot into this house.

3 The Royals Go Hard In France

via daily mail

Our never-ending fascination with the Royals is because they lead an unattainable travelling lifestyle many of us can only dream about. And when in France, it is hard not to go all out and do it in true French style, so when Prince William and his family take annual summer trips, they stay at an opulent resort. If ever you are planning on taking a summer trip to the South of France, then hurry and book Chateau La Roque, as it only has only five rooms.
