Thanks to the royal baby and the royal wedding, everyone has royalty on the mind! For those of us who weren’t lucky enough to snag a proposal from a prince, experiencing the splendor and romance of England’s first family is as easy as taking a trip across the pond on the Adventures by Disney England and France vacation.

The trip starts at Westminster Abbey, the beautiful cathedral that has been the site of countless coronations and royal weddings – including the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. And, what is a monarchy without their Crown Jewels? The crown’s finest royal artifacts will steal the show during a special, private tour of the Tower of London!

Visit Windsor Castle, the Queen’s favorite weekend getaway. Home to British royalty since the 11th century, the castle features grand buildings and stunning grounds. The chapel on castle grounds is where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said “I do.”
