In January 2002 The Ritz London received a Royal Warrant from His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, for Banqueting and Catering Services.
Royal Warrants are a mark of recognition to those who have regularly supplied goods or services to certain members of the Royal family for at least five years. The earliest known Royal Warrant dates back to 1155 and the distinction has always been regarded as a mark of excellence and quality.
"The proprietors and all members of our staff are extremely proud of this association. The Ritz has been serving members of the Royal Family for many years since its opening in 1906 and we feel particularly honoured to be the only hotel ever to have been accorded a Royal Warrant" Sal Gowili, Hotel Manager of The Ritz London.
