 Claridge's is an up-market, five-star hotel situated in London's Mayfair. It was established in 1812 as Mivart's Hotel and, following development, became one of the premier London hotels. It was re-built in its present form in 1894, since when it has been the hotel of choice for many aristocrats and celebrities.

When Peter II of Yugoslavia and his wife were in exile at Claridge's during World War II, their suite was designated Yugoslav territory for one day in 1945 so that their son, Crown Prince Alexander, could claim to have been born on Yugoslav soil.
