London is the world ' s best destination for 2019 , according to TripAdvisor 's 2019 Travelers' Choice Awards. The U.K. capital surpassed second-ranked Paris with the help of the international buzz generated by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's May 2018 wedding.

London knocked protest-hit Paris off the top travel slot in the ranking determined by reviews and ratings over the past 12 months for hotels, restaurants and experiences.

TripAdvisor says the outcome is down to the spotlight of the royal wedding.

"The global fascination with Harry and Meghan clearly has a powerful effect as this is the first time since 2016 that London has topped the world rankings," TripAdvisor spokeswoman Hayley Coleman said in a statement.

"With the couple's new Royal baby due imminently, London may continue to reap the rewards of the Harry and Meghan effect into 2020," she added.

There was also a "significant rise" in bookings for royal-focused experiences, TripAdvisor revealed, particularly for tours to see the Changing of the Guard, Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. Such attractions saw a year-on-year increase of between 94% and 231%, the website said.
