Didaar-e-Taj: Royal Couple to stay at ‘Kohinoor’, the luxury suite that costs Rs 8.52 lakh/day
New Delhi: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton are currently on a week long tour of India and Bhutan. The royal couple is making most of their trip by visiting the not-so-common places and doing the not-so-opulent things in the country.
But today, Prince William and Kate Middleton will have a ‘royal’ rendezvous in Agra as they just reached the historic ‘Taj Mahal’. This visit was already making noise in International media as Princess Diana (Prince William’s mother) also visited the place 23 years ago. The couple are creating their own special memories as they sit on the 'Diana Bench' which is situated at the central tank of the monument.
William-Kate is the second British royal coupe to visit the marble wonder after independence. To make the visit a real regal experience, a special luxurious suite ‘Kohinoor’ has been booked for their stay.
Spread over 3014 square feet, ‘Kohinoor’ is the most expensive suite in Agra. The cost for one day stay at this magnificent place is whooping Rs 7,50,000, adding the tax, the amount goes up to Rs 8,52,000. One can have an exclusive view of the 'Taj Mahal' even from inside of the suite.
An advance team from Britain already did the security vigil of ‘Kohinoor’ ahead of Duke and Duchess visit. Though, William-Kate’s Agra visit is limited to few hours but the team has finalized all the arrangements beforehand.
The luxury hotel has also prepared to serve Prince William with his favorite food. The ‘Kohinoor’ suite floor will remain shut due to security reasons during their stay in the hotel,
In the past, many renowned world celebrities and premiers have stayed at this luxury heaven. ‘Kohinoor’ has been the favourite of Presidents of America, France, China, Russia and Pakistan, who have stayed here and adored the marble wonder.
Before the royal couple, the suite was prepared for US President Barack Obama when he visited the country last year in January. Sadly, his visit was cancelled at the last moment.
