Diamonds are a queen's best friend. In June, Great Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee, marking 60 years on the thrown. Instead of braving the street crowds, savor royal views and exclusive experiences on the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park London's four-day Diamond Jubilee package, June 2-6, 2012.

Included in the package are a welcome dinner; a trip aboard the HMS Belfast to view the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant, a fleet of 1,200 vessels led by the royal family; visit to Penshurst Place, the former hunting lodge of Henry VIII, to enjoy the Elizabethan gardens, followed by lunch at the treasure-filled home of Randolph and Catherine Churchill; exclusive view of the royal procession from the balcony of 12 Carlton House; and farewell dinner.

Avoiding hoi polloi comes at a price: Rates for the Diamond Jubilee Tour package begin at $10,138 single, $17,594 double, inclusive of full English breakfast. Tax and service are additional.
