Where Kate and William will honeymoon

27 January 2011

Okay we’re not just itching to know who’s designing the dress, we’re also dying to know where William and Kate will head off to after the Big Day. Will they return to the Lewa Downs game reserve in Kenya, where Wills originally popped in the question? After all, Kenya offers big skies, stunning landscapes and some of the best safari opportunities in Africa, not forgetting easy flights and almost no jetlag. Similarly, Tanzania is also a current favourite with bookmakers, with 4 to 1 odds in its favour. The royal couple has not been short of invites either. Rugby World Cup organizers have apparently invited them next year's event in New Zealand as part of their honeymoon. While ‘ruggers’ fan William might be eager, we’re not so sure whether Kate will enjoy spending her honeymoon belting out "Swing Low Sweet Chariot". So, Kwiliam, if you’re suffering from travel brochure overload, may we suggest the following…

 *   The idyllic island of Desroches in the Seychelles. Apparently the couple flew there in 2007 to patch up their relationship after a short split and it’s been reported that this was the place where they first talked seriously about marriage. With virgin rain forest fringing picture perfect white sandy beaches, who wouldn’t be in the mood for lurrrve here?

 *   Chile. William spent 10 weeks there on his Gap Yah and might be keen to show Kate this beautiful country with over 6500 kilometres of coastline. Traveller should head for the Atacama Desert – this is the driest place on Earth and boasts spectacular lunar landscapes [above image]. It’s the also perfect place for a spot of horse riding (Wills' favourite hobby). Book a room at the Hotel De Larache: with two outdoor swimming pools, to-die for dessert views, open air Jacuzzis and a self service bar, it's the place to stay at!

 *   If the honeymoon is all about keeping from prying paparazzi lenses, a private island is a must. Step up Richard Branson: his famous Necker Island retreat, one of the British Virgin Islands, has long been an Eden for A-listers seeking to duck out of the limelight. The happy couple can dabble in a spot of kite surfing, or take the Necker Belle (a 32-metre catamaran) out for a spin on the Caribbean’s turquoise waters or simply swing in a hammock and admire the view…or each other...
