According to Monday’s Daily Mail newspaper, Prince William will take his new bride Kate Middleton, away to a £4,000 per-night luxury villa on an exclusive island in the Seychelles for their honeymoon in mid-May. A private jet will fly the newly-titled Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to the main island from where they will take a helicopter to the unnamed holiday hideaway, the paper claimed.
But on their return, just four months after the wedding, the couple face a ten-week separation as William is sent to the Falkland Isles to further his helicopter training. Partners are banned from joining those serving in the South Atlantic, so Kate is unable to travel with William to the remote post.
The luxury wooden villa comes complete with an open-air bathroom, a private garden, a freshwater rock pool and a personal butler and chef. The 28-year-old prince’s protection officers reportedly visited the top-secret location to assess its suitability and were satisfied that the isolated resort would offer the required privacy.
It’s one of the most incredible places you will ever visit and Kate will have the time of her life. It’s everything you could want from a honeymoon destination and more – beautiful beaches, tropical seas and complete privacy, a source said.
The Mail is not publishing details of the location, and it is understood that not even Kate is aware of the exact destination.
