Kate Middleton and Prince William Plan to Delay Honeymoon
Prince William and new bride Kate Middleton have elected not to leave for their honeymoon immediately, deciding to stay in Britain for the weekend according to palace officials.
The royal couple, who wed on Friday at Westminster Abbey, is delaying their honeymoon to an undisclosed overseas location on “personal preference,” officials said. Furthermore, Prince William plans to return to military duty in Wales as a helicopter rescue pilot in the Royal Air Force at the end of the weekend.
The palace has not revealed where in Britain the couple intends to spend the rest of the weekend, nor is it planned on being disclosed. Like the honeymoon, William and Middleton’s privacy is being considered after the concentrated media presence at their wedding.
However, Prince William has scheduled a two-week leave from his military duties at some point, and a variety of options have been presented. Queen Elizabeth II’s Balmoral Estate in Scotland has been discussed, as well as a scuba-diving honeymoon in Australia. A private island in the Caribbean or the Seychelles is also a possibility.
The honeymoon is generally expected to be shorter than the two-week Mediterranean cruise William’s parents Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana enjoyed.
