With the announcement of a royal wedding in England this week, there’s no better time to go on a date that makes your partner feel like a king or a queen.  Short on ideas?  Cupid’s got you covered!

One of the most classically royal things to do is to attend a ball. It doesn’t have to be Cinderella-level on decadence, but with the holidays approaching there are plenty of charity balls and events from which to choose.   Some are invite-only, but others only require a donation for a seat.  It’s the perfect excuse to get all gussied up, and it’s for a good cause, too!  Cities like Chicago and Boston have a bunch this holiday season!

While you likely won’t be able to get to the ball in a horse drawn carriage, you can take a ride in one afterward.  Central Park in NYC is famous for its horse-drawn carriage rides, but many other city parks offer them as well.

For a more cost-effective royal feeling, take a tour of the nearest high end jewelry store near you.  Tiffany’s or Cartier will work, but remember you’re just there to browse — unless you actually are a royal, in which case, buy away!

If you’re really in the monarchy spirit and feel like helping a good cause, check out a showing of the Great Orchestra Christmas Charity, which will be touring select cities in the U.S. all the way from Poland this year.
