UPDATE, May 10, 2011:
After much speculation and anticipation, it was reported this morning that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, known to the world simply as William and Kate, arrived in Seychelles for their honeymoon today. The Seychelles, a cluster of islands in the Indian Ocean, are a popular destination for Europe’s elite. It’s rumored that the Royal Couple made a secret pact to get married while on holiday in Desroches Island, Seychelles, in 2007. It was always a likely contender for the royal honeymoon hideaway with the island’s stunning, and very exclusive, private beaches.

Speculation, rumors and bets have been swirling around for months leading up to the royal wedding of the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. We now know who designed Kate’s dress (Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen), how long the balcony kiss would last (2 quick pecks from Wills), the celebrity guests (the Beckhams and Elton John among others), but one big question still remains: Where will the royal couple honeymoon?
The latest speculation is that the royal couple will travel to Jordan for a Middle-Eastern post-wedding getaway. Australia is also high on the list. After a recent trip Down Under, the Duke was reported as saying that Australia could be the spot for his honeymoon with the Duchess.
And then there’s Kenya. The couple got engaged in Kenya’s remote Rutundu Log Cabins retreat last October, and it is reported that the Duke signed the visitors book: “Look forward to next time. Soon, I hope.” Perhaps Wills will keep his word, and the couple will honeymoon in the wild.
