With a month to go until the royal wedding, there’s no doubt Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have locked in their honeymoon plans long ago.
According to Travel + Leisure, a reliable source has confirmed the couple are going to Namibia in southwest Africa, just north of South Africa on the Atlantic coast.
It certainly makes sense. Harry and Meghan holidayed in neighbouring nation Botswana just prior to their engagement, so it’s a special part of the world for them.
Another reason might be that Namibia is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world, meaning privacy isn’t difficult to come by, especially if you check-in to a luxurious safari resort. Travel + Leisure is convinced the royal newlyweds are staying at Hoanib Valley Camp, which is, according to the website:
“Deep in north-western Namibia … the area is a melee of towering mountains, sand dunes, and huge expanses of desert, scattered with unique wildlife and nomadic Himba settlements. It’s also one of Namibia’s most remote and wild environments, and one that not many will get the chance to discover in a lifetime.”
Of course, the story could have been planted as a distraction to keep their real honeymoon destination a secret. But it seems right up their alley, don’t you think?
Harry and Meghan are set to tie the knot on May 19 at Windsor Castle.
