In the heart of London’s exclusive Knightsbridge, situated between Harvey Nichols and Hyde Park, is the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park hotel.

It’s the latest of London’s top hotels to get its own documentary series, and you can’t help but wonder what more can be learned from going behind-the-scenes at yet another posh hotel, but people love a snoop at how the other half live.

For more than 100 years, the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park has hosted royalty, celebrities and the super-rich. In the first of a three-part series, the hotel prepares to welcome a royal visitor from overseas, as well as her entourage.
