Royal couple choose Indian Ocean for honeymoon

| 17/05/2011

(CNS): Any hopes that the royal newlyweds would be heading to the Caribbean for their honeymoon have been dashed as the couple have opted for the Seychelles. It is not clear exactly where the couple is staying as the palace has released few details. However, the international press is reporting that William and Kate are staying at a private island in the Indian Ocean archipelago for their ten day vacation. The Sun newspaper is also reporting that the couple has chartered the Sea Stream a $2million luxury yacht for at least some of their stay. The Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, 16 of which offers hotels and resorts for tourists.

According to the Daily Mail, Farhan Vladi, who runs a private island estate agency, said his firm had rented an island to the British royal family. “Prince William and Kate are spending their honeymoon there. But you will understand that we are not saying anything further," he told the UK tabloid.


It has not been made clear who will pay the bill for the 10-night holiday at $45,000 per night or whether the royal couple were given a discount on the sum.
