If there's one thing we've learned this summer it's that the Brits are classy. From the Diamond Jubilee to the ongoing Olympic games, it's clear that Her Royal Majesty recognizes true luxury when she sees it (and isn't afraid to parachute out of a helicopter, either... but that's a whole other story).
While we all might be wishing our way to London right now, it might be easier -- and just as fabulous -- to visit some of the Royals' favorite hotels beyond the British Isles. They can't take their castles with them when they travel, but Queen Elizabeth II and company do find some of the most elegant, indulgent properties to call home when touring the globe.
Just don't forget to pack your finery when traveling to these hotels. They are, after all, literally fit for a queen.
