We traveled to London for the royal wedding — and 10 lucky fans came along for the trip!

Five fans — and one guest each — received two round-trip tickets from New York to London, courtesy of our partner, Virgin Atlantic, during our royal wedding party on the plaza.

In addition, the group received a three-night stay at a five-star hotel in the heart of London — overlooking Kensington Palace — courtesy of the Milestone Hotel and Residences. They also joined the team at Windsor for the royal wedding!

In case you missed the contest, we asked fans to show up on the Plaza in their best costume — with their passport in hand. The group was told there would be just one winner. When they learned everyone would travel, the response was immediate.

The group hit the ground running Friday (literally). They toured around London...

...and even took a few minutes to check in with Hoda and Savannah while visiting Buckingham Palace.

Afterwards, they stopped for some afternoon tea back at The Milestone Hotel.
