Royal wedding fever

Taking place 19 May at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is set to attract bumper crowds from across the world, with Agoda reporting a 40% increase on accommodation bookings in Windsor, as well as neighboring Slough and Greater London.

Royal wedding fever has hit Asia-Pacific especially hard, with 9 out of 15 of the top inbound markets and the majority of overall bookings (43%) from the region.  South Korea (#2), Hong Kong (#3) and Australia (#4) are the most royal wedding enthusiastic countries from this region.

Unsurprisingly, just like the bride, many guests traveling to the Windsor and Greater London area in time for the royal wedding will also hail from the United States (#1).
