Well the secret’s out! It seems the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have jetted off to beautiful, and molto romantic, Seychelles for their honeymoon. We just knew that Kate’s bikini buying pointed to some upcoming fun in the sun – girls don’t buy beautiful beachwear for a splash in the local swimming pool! I’m so glad that they’ve not waited too long, there’s nothing sweeter than heading off on honeymoon while you’re still basking in the happy glow of your wedding day. And I do hope now that they will be able to spend the next two weeks just as every other honeymooning couple would – happy, together, and ALONE.
The world’s favourite couple tried to slip away quietly yesterday only to have their cover blown by the loose-lipped Seychelles tourist board who obviously couldn’t contain their excitement. St. James’ Palace is, of course, remaining tight-lipped.
Rumour has it that the royal couple visited the Indian Ocean paradise in 2007, and it was here on their make-it-or-break-it holiday that they vowed to stay together forever, aaww. The main contender for the royal honeymoon hotel is the private island lodging, Desroches. This little drop scone in the sea is ringed by white sands, coral reefs and baby blue sea. There are only and handful of luxury beach villas hidden amidst verdant greenery, but the royal couple are bound to have bagged the Presidential Villa. Tastefully decorated in dark woods and soothing vanilla tones, featuring a four-poster bed, large dining and entertainment area, and - honeymoon heaven! – an outdoor bathing area with monsoon shower. The villa also comes equipped with its own butler, chef and private swimming pool.
The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted buying some swimwear from high-street store, Goldenpoint, and is said to have opted for a black and white bikini and this cute pink two-piece. Kate is also said to be packing a selection of evening dresses from the Victoria Beckham Spring/Summer range.
The royal honeymoon is not the only trip coming up for the dynamic duo, Canada is next on the cards, followed by a trip Hollywood to visit Wills’ pal, David Beckham so even if we don’t see them for the next fortnight – and hopefully we won’t – they’ll be plenty of opportunity to spot the happy couple this summer.
