COMO The Treasury has made quite a splash in Perth, and was in the press again recently for being one of the rendezvous stops for honeymooner's Pippa Middleton and her husband James Matthews.
Ms Middleton (penned by the media as 'Her Royal Hotness') is the sister of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. Kate - William's wife), and she's not the only brush with royalty that this location has been blessed with of late. In April, Lady Kitty Spencer - niece of the late Princess Diana and first cousin to the potential future King of England, William, and our beloved Harry - reportedly stayed there too, when she was over in Perth for Bentley Polo in the Valley.
With COMO The Treasury being high on the list for those in the royal sphere, isn't it time you checked out the jewel that is the Treasury precinct for yourself? Whether it's a meal fit for a king at one of the restaurants within The State Buildings or a drink with your ladies at the Treasury Lounge and Bar, Perth socialites should lap up the experience. Who said we'll never be royals? So, grab your queen bee, and make a day, night or weekend of it at The State Buildings and COMO The Treasury, Perth!
