Whether it’s bonbons fit for a queen or princely tailoring, Buckingham Palace awards its
favorite retailers with Royal Warrants. Here, three that also get T+L’s stamp of approval.
Charbonnel et Walker,
known for its dusted truffles and chocolates, has supplied the palace since Mme. Charbonnel arrived
from France in 1875. Gieves & Hawkes, a maker of suits, shirts, and ties, outfits Charles and Philip, and
Partridges is the go-to
grocery for staples of aristocratic life, from lemon shortbread to English Breakfast tea.
