Rumor has it that the Royal newlyweds have touched down on the Seychelles islands in the Indian Ocean to start their slightly delayed honeymoon. Wills and Kate took a private jet to the resort and are said to be staying 10 days at a private villa on Desroches Island or possibly the secluded North Island (and spending up to 4,000 Euros a night). This is their second trip to the exclusive exotic locale (which is a string of 115 islands about 1,000 miles off the coast Africa), first making news when they visited in 2007, following a much publicized break-up.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s post-wedding vacation sounds a little more relaxing than that of the bridegroom’s parents. Prince Charles and Princess Diana spent their honeymoon on the royal yacht Britannia, taking cruise around the Mediterranean. Unfortunately, the Queen apparently scheduled in official visits on many off the stops. Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson had a more low-key honeymoon in the Portuguese Azores.
Other famous honeymooners who chose the ultraluxe Seychelles? Actors Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, Salma Hayek and billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, and Paul McCartney and Heather Mills.
Hopefully, Princess Kate and Prince William will get some much needed and much deserved privacy while they are there… Meanwhile, the rest of us can dream!
