    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are no strangers to star-studded holidays, with the newlyweds surrounding themselves with a lot of A-list pals.

    Earlier this year the couple holidayed with George and Amal Clooney at their Lake Como villa and next month they will be setting off on a tour around Australasia with close pal David Beckham.

    It was a different trip that everyone was talking about this week however, with the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex spending a star-studded few days in Amsterdam last weekend.

    The occasion? The opening of a new Soho House in Amsterdam, attended by a lot of very famous faces. We’re talking  Eddie Redmayne, Jenna Coleman, Michael McIntyre, Nick Grimshaw, Ella Eyre, Lily Cole and Stanley Tucci to name just a few!

    The long weekend was spent celebrating the new Soho House and its founder, Nick Jones, who turned 55 over the very same weekend, with the combined celebrations held in the refurbished former shipping headquarters on the Singel Canal.

    Of course Harry and Meghan’s attendance wasn’t surprising, given the couple’s history with the member’s club. The now Duke and Duchess of Sussex actually met at London’s Soho House on a blind date, and Meghan reportedly even had her Hen Do at Soho Farmhouse, its spin-off rural retreat in the Cotswalds.

    What did the weekend entail? Well, according to reports, ‘eating, drinking, napping, boats and bikes’.

    Honoured guests reportedly enjoyed a weekend-long celebration in the rooftop pool, feasting on lobster spaghetti and tiramisu, indulging in Cowshed spa treatments, and even being treated to an emotional speech by Nick’s wife, Kirsty Young, who recently took some time away from presenting Desert Island Discs following her Fibromyalgia diagnosis.

    All in all, it sounds like it was an unmissable weekend!

    That’s good practice for their upcoming tour!
