You can’t get more regal than sitting down for a spot of afternoon tea with a man famous for his work with the Royal Family. Paul Burrell will be paying a rare visit to Australia to help Gold Coast’s luscious Palazzo Versace host a one day only Royal Afternoon Tea event, described as a grand afternoon promising it’s own royal glow as guests are immersed in a decidedly British aura of world class hospitality, culinary finesse and an “in conversation” style session with Burrell himself, offering unique insights into etiquette and entertaining.

“As the event name suggests, it’s about wanting guests to feel like royalty, and we will be gathering a team of event experts to create an opulent event experience like no other”, said Alysia Bridger, Queensland based event stylist and co-organiser of the event with partner Rachell Hansen. “We are absolutely thrilled that we were able to secure someone with the calibre of Paul Burrell who brings his knowledge and experience from 21 years of service with the British Royal Family”.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to Youngcare, a charity established in Brisbane 12 years ago to support young people with high care needs.
