The weddings in the royal family are definitely the event of the year. On one hand, their “big days” were hugely spectated. On the other, there is their honeymoon that is much more private? The question is: Which honeymoon destinations the royal couples opted for?
Prince William and Kate Middleton
After the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married in 2011, they opted for maybe one of the most romantic honeymoon destinations for a newly-wed couple. William and Kate’s decision to go on Seychelles. While they were there, they stayed at the exclusive North Island for privacy.
Apparently, a night at the luxury resort costs around £5,000. Also, celebrities like George Clooney and Brad Pitt chose this place for their honeymoons.
You most certainly won’t forget that kind of honeymoon with 24-hour service, spa treatments, private pool, diving and their own catered meals.
Prince Charles and Princess Diana
After marrying in 1981, Prince Charles and Princess Diana decided for another romantic honeymoon destination. The couple headed to the Mediterranean on the Royal Yacht Britannia.
They cruised for two weeks after spending two nights at Broadlands. Broadlands is a country estate in property of the Mountbatten family.
However, it seems that their honeymoon wasn’t as happy as their son’s. Apparently, Princess Diana wrote several letters describing it as the perfect trip to “catch up on sleep”.
Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson
Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson chose the Azores Islands near Portugal after their wedding in 1986. The royal couple sailed aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia for five days and visited many of the islands in the region.
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip
It has been 70 years since Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip got married on 20 November 1947.
There were many honeymoon destinations, but they chose to spend it closer to home. The newly-wed couple went to two destinations in the UK.
For their first place, they opted for Broadlands in Hampshire. They stayed in the family home of the Mountbatten’s. The home is a property of Prince Philip’s uncle Earl Mountbatten.
Their second stay was Birkhall in Scotland, the place where Queen Elizabeth frequently spent her summer with the Queen Mother.
