Prince Harry of Wales and Meghan Markle married on May 19th, 2018 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. With more than 29 million viewers, Harry and Meghan exchanged their vows and officially became the Duke and Duchess of Sussex! Three days later, the couple jetted off for an extended honeymoon to an unknown location.
The honeymoon destination was the topic of conversation for several weeks leading up to the wedding with the top destinations being Namibia, Africa and Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Alberta, Canada.
Harry and Meghan arrived back at Kensington Palace on June 8th, just in time for Trooping the Colour on June 9th!
Not expecting to see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex until the carriage procession at Trooping the Colour, Prince Harry surprised everyone when he made a solo appearance at a charity event just hours after returning from his honeymoon. That’s when everyone noticed the biggest hint of all: a sunburn! The next day, the Duchess debuted a flawless tan herself during Trooping the Colour. While their destination wasn’t confirmed, it was clear they went somewhere exotic.
The rumors continued to circulate with many people believing that they went to Namibia. On June 26th, the Duke and Duchess accompanied the Queen for an event to honor the recipients of the Queen’s Young Leaders awards. During the event, one philanthropist from Namibia asked the Duke if they honeymooned in Namibia to which Harry : “No, we didn’t go to Namibia.”
Hearing talk of the honeymoon excited a journalist around the Duke. That’s when he made the biggest statement of all- the statement that everyone had been waiting for! That's when Harry confidently turned to the journalist and confessed: “I’m not going to say where . . .” While Harry’s confession attempted to quiet the guessing, it only fueled the fire more for Royal fans! Now, everyone is dying to learn their even more top-secret honeymoon destination!
Well, we guess that covers that! While it’s the reveal we were hoping for, it certainly puts a rest to eager fans hoping to find out where they went. We can’t blame Harry for him wanting to protect his privacy.
