Ring in the royal wedding like nobility at Mandarin Oriental’s Royal Wedding Tea and Viewing Party on May 19. The festivities kick off with a half-hour rosé reception in honor of Meghan Markle’s favorite libation before guests watch the nuptial revelries unfold while enjoying a traditional afternoon tea service, including a choice of five loose leaf tea blends as well as finger sandwiches and sweet confections prepared by pastry chef Robert Differ. In line with the bride and groom’s wishes for donations in lieu of gifts, part of the event’s proceeds will go to the Franciscan Children’s foundation. Grab your best fascinator and head to the Mandarin Oriental on May 19 to ring in the royal wedding bells in style. / Julia Aparicio
