And: In the list of Royal Warrant holders of the British Royal Family only one British hotel figures. British Royal Warrants are currently granted by Elizabeth II, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales to companies or tradespeople who supply goods and services. The warrant enables the supplier to advertise the fact that they supply to the royal family. Royal Warrants are only awarded to tradesmen. The professions, employment agencies, party planners, the media, government departments, and "places of refreshment or entertainment" (such as pubs and theatres) do not qualify. The „Catering Services“ of the Ritz Hotel, London, however, qualify.
